Just Sprouted

I'm back with another DT card for 613 Avenue Create!  This week the optional twist on our ANYTHING GOES challenge is: the SIGHTS/SOUNDS/SMELLS/TASTES OF SPRING.The amazing sponsor who provided the adorable image I'm working with today is The Paper Shelter.  I've long admired the images in this shop - they're all so stinking cute!  

When I think of spring, I think of flowers, and birds, and butterflies, and......babies!  I think it comes from being a spring baby myself, but I always find myself drawn to making baby cards this time of year.  Today I've used the little (pre-colored!) sweetheart in the Enchanted Dream stamp as my starting point.  

The papers are from my ever-favorite paper pack "In Bloom" from My Mind's Eye.  I've layered them up, with a few warm pink shades of card stock, on top of a 6x6 white card base.  I used the same pink card stock shades to cut some flowers with an EK Success punch, and the smaller butterflies with a the Paper Studio punch.   I added pearls from various sources in multiple spots on the card front.

There is a small wooden flower beneath the Iamroses rose as well as a paper doily and some twine for texture.  .

For those in the know, Yes!  The butterflies are sparkly!
The inside has a coordinating paper panel, with butterflies, and a sentiment from the same stamp set as the sentiment on the card front.  There's plenty of room to write a personal note.

Be sure to click on over to 613 Avenue Create to see what my very talented teamies have created to share this week!   We'd love to see you join us!
