Happy for Spring

 Our challenge this week is "SPRING"

Oh am I so happy for SPRING!  I just love the first sign of flowers! Although it will be awhile here yet, as we do have some snow yet.

Here's my creation I shared with you yesterday, but wanted to share some more of the details with you:

 
After stamping the sentiment I used Creative Inspiration Paint "Light Purple" to add some shimmer to the top.

I really like using the CI Paints to alter white ribbon to match my card. I had some white lace type ribbon that I wanted to make match my card better, so I used "Burgundy" to alter the ribbon.

Before:

In the process:
(Note: I used "Light Purple" on this sample)

Finished sample using "Burgundy" along with the original white:


Lastly, here is the cute little butterfly I added and used "Fairy Dust" to add some shimmer to it!

And welcome to our 5th CI Paints DT term!! Can you believe it's been a year since we first started here?!  We are welcoming some new DT members, so make sure to check back to see their creations!

Well I hope you enjoyed my card!
