TE Blast From the Past Blog Hop


This month's theme for the Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop is Spring!  Yes, Spring. . .that season that is undecided as to whether or not it's officially here!  LOL 

For my card, I used the butterfly image from Discover Your Wings along with a sentiment from Favorite Peeps.  I stamped the butterfly using two inks (Pink Grapefruit and Persimmon) for a gradient effect.  The papers are from the Morning Meadow Collection from SEI.  I added some bling to the butterfly for some sparkle. 

Now it's time to see what everyone else came up with for the Spring theme! 


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!  (ETA:  I forgot to mention that I used Sankari's fabulous sketch for my card!)

This is so beautiful, love the colors. They definitely say spring! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, it reminded me to come back and check out your beautiful creation. For some reason I kept getting an older post (early March) when I tried coming here last week, very strange... Have a wonderful week!
