Butterflies in France

   Hello, are you enjoying this wonderful weather?  We sure have  had some  warm days already.I really enjoy spring time... The fresh air, the sun shine  and  new life  ...I cannot wait to see my first butterfly of the season...
    It is  time for another Tea Pot Tuesday  card... This week we are sending to another  "teapotter", so to speak. And the idea  was  to bring in  France, Paris or  some thing along those lines to brighten a day.
I had just  brought home an awesome butterfly die set, it is made by Die-namics...  I totally love it too. I have been looking  for a small scale  butterfly punch or die...this one is perfect. It has three sizes, so layering is  a snap.. So I created a card based around  the theme
 "Are There Butterflies In France " ?
   I found the France die cut that was precolored at our LSS,  and loved the colors so I worked around it ...
It is the same place I found the awesome  butterfly die set .
  I used  night of navy  as my card base, then I layered it with some navy  dp  by SU
   and some kiwi card stock stamped  with a Hero Arts stamp on it...named" Hearts Amore" . 
  The bow was made with my Easy Bow maker, I am still getting the hang of it...I am not sure I like using the sheer ribbon with it ...? !
   I added some lighter blue bling to pick up the off color in that die cut  and kept the butterflies simple, but added a touch of navy ink to  lift them up of the Kiwi card stock...

     Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope  you are enjoying  this  beautiful SPRING like weather.
 Have a great week, and Happy Easter

    I hope to back soon with pictures of a day  of celebrating  my grand daughters  birthday... We had a  great  time  : )   So be sure to stop back soon...  Til you do,   hugs and smiles...
