Addicted to stamps-theme

Hi everyone, lordy, lordy what's happened to the temperature! It's freezing here but at least it's stopped raining and I've had a lovely weekend with Charlie who hadn't forgotten me since last week:)
Our challenge this week at ATS is a theme and we are asking to see cards depicting SPRING. The DT have created some fabulous cards and I hope you like my card this week:)



I decided to make a tri-fold shutter card and keep it fairly simple. I used cream cardstock and a piece of paper with butterflies and flowers which I think is quite spring like.  I cut out some of the butterflies and flowers and popped them up for dimension. The main flower is a stamp from SU Mixed Bunch, inked in Pretty Pirouette, Certainly Celery and Rose Red and punched out with leaves from the bird on a branch punch. The sentiment is by WOW.


I do hope you'll play along this week, we love to visit your blogs to see your cards.
I'd just like to welcome my latest follower, Jean and thank you for choosing to follow my blog:)
Good luck with this week's challenge!

Your card looks really lovely, Val. Your popped up butterflies, flowers and leaves look really effective. Love the colours, too.
I hate to wish our time away, but oh how I long for Springtime. This weather is so depressing...isn't it? xx

This is just gorgeous Val and yes, I think it's a great idea to stop making Christmas cards and other chilly creations and come up with a burst of sunshine! Of course Charlie wouldn't forget you! Vicky x

A really pretty spring card Val - really zingy colours. Gosh it must have got really cold in North London.......wet and windy (well perhaps that's just Tony......!) but not that cold yet.......watch this space.
