Springtime Wishes

Happy Friday to you! I hope that you are all well.  It's Friday, so lets play along with the wonderfully talented ladies over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday!  This week's sketch is brought to us by Kim I.  She has done a wonderful job with the sketch.  
the sketch:

this week, I pretty much followed the sketch to a T.  
Here is what I created:

I have to admit, I'm a crumb cake addict.  I must use this card stock/ink on almost every project or paper craft item I create.  Ok, now on with the card!  crumb cake card stock as the card base.  very vanilla card stock was run through the vintage wall paper embossing folder.  A scrap piece of crumb cake dsp was added to the bottom half of the card.  I stamped a flourish stamp in crumb cake along the bottom edge.  The tag was made with the Lots of Tags die.  (another all time favorite).  I stamped the sentiment in basic black classic ink.  I added three half faux pearls, and butterfly made from the silver glitter paper and a paper blossom from real red card stock.   wow, i use butterflies on just about every project or paper craft item, too.
I used the new red taffeta ribbon.  I wrapped the ribbon around the card and tied it in a bow.  I used pink pirouette card stock and first edition dsp to create the 'banner' pieces.  I cut the smaller butterfly from the die, using the silver glitter paper.  I made one of those paper blossoms out of circles.  You cut 3-4 different size circles and off set them.  You can either leave them crisp and new or distress them.  I like to distress, so I sprayed them with my home made shimmer paint, and scrunched them.  I used a basic black brad to hold the blossoms together.  The leaves were made with the blossom punch and pear pizzazz dsp.  
Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate the company {smiles}.
Now, don't forget, its a blog hop, so stop by Tammy F.'s blog to see what she (and the rest of the design team) have created.
