Tulips and Butterflies...STAMPlorations Things with Wings Blog Hop and Linky Party (Week 3)

Hello,

Once again, I'm delighted to join Shery and her STAMPlorations team as a guest designer for Week 3 of the STAMPlorations Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop & Linky Party


First things first: a quick question: Have you hopped and/or linked up a winged-themed spring project yet? If not, then catch up on Week 2 here and then head on over to Week 1, where you'll find yet more cards and the link-up details. Inspiration and prizes to be had, so be sure to comment and play along!

Both my cards feature:  my new Tulip Prints ARTploration stencil (so fabulous!) and butterflies from the Flutter Zen 2 Layering Dies. Pretty x two! The sentiment on the first is from Trendy Butterflies 2 and on the second is the Thanks CUTploration. Distress inks on all: Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides on Card 1, followed by Picked Raspberry, Spiced Maralade and Mustard Seed on Card 2.....




I adore these butterflies! 

Please head over to STAMPlorations to see awesome inspiration from the rest of the team. 

Things with Wings....that's all you need!  
See you in the gallery!
