Happy Spring!

  • White embossed mat cut @ 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Embossed using "Kassie's Brocade" folder through the Cuttlebug
  • Prima flower
  • Recollections lavender pearls added to flower center and butterfly bodies
  • Martha Stewart "Classic Butterfly" punch 
  • Stampin' Up "Modern Label" punch used for sentiment mat
  • Stampin Up "Orchard Opulence" ink used for edging (retired)
  • Cardz TV Stamps "Think Spring" set used for sentiment stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink
