Color My Heart for Spring

I am combining the Heart 2 Heart challenge to "spring" forward with the Color My Heart challenge to use Lagoon, Blue Denim and Pear.  This would be very easy if I had the new Close to My Heart  Later Sk8tr paper pack, but I don't so...  The butterfly was cut using the Paper Lace Cricut Cartridge.  I sponged the Lagoon layer with a bit of Blue Denim and, after embossing the Pear layer, sponged on a little Pear ink to make it pop a bit more.  I used my computer to make the sentiment as I did not have one that fit what I had in mind:
I should also mention that some of the Design Team Members at Heart 2 Heart will be offering blog candy this month.  This week Tamytha is offering a chance to win some really cool prizes including paper!  Hop on over to her blog, Paper Heartist, to check it out.   Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time, Hansi
Materials used, all from Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted:
Paper:  Blue Denim, Lagoon, Pear and White Daisy cardstock, Dotty For You (retired)

  1. This is a similar butterfly to the one that you submitted last week for Color my Heart. I so enjoy watching the butterflies in my gardens in the summer months. Thanks for joining us this week at Color my Heart.

  2. Such a pretty version of last week's card, Hansi! I love that "dotty for you" paper with this color combo! Thanks for joining in at Color My Heart.


  3. Fantastic job of "making do" with your stash and tools for the requirements of this week's dare at Color My Heart.! It resulted in another lovely card. You do such a good job of finishing the insides of your cards, too. Thanks for the inspiration--Bring on spring, I say!

  4. Love the colors on this - so vibrant and fun! Beautiful design.

  6. Beautiful card for both these challenges! I love all the embossing you've done, but my favorite part is those tiny sparkles added to the butterfly!
