Spring is on the way

Good Morning All, I hope you are all keeping well and had a good weekend, Something a bit different from me today,  Papercraft essentials free gift this month was this gorgeous butterfly embossing folder and some Core'dinations card, so I thought I would have a play, I used the embossing folder with white card, the backing paper is Papermaina capsule, Dovecraft border punch, Joycraft die cut flowers which are cut from the core;dinations card I embossed one of the butterflies in the orange, trimmed it up I sanded the flower and the butterfly Crealie die cut leaves.button from stash.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

brenda said...

" Late as usual" seems becoming my signature tune Kevin !

This one is a real stunner, a little bit different to you if you don't mind me saying so, but it shows just how versatile you are.

The orange flowers against the embossed background are perfectly balanced by the pastel DP.

Thanks so much and sharing and joining my 'Things with Wings' theme at Allsorts challenge this week.

This looks great...love the eembossing folder and the fabulous butterfly!

I really like the bright, cheery colours...brights up a dull day over here today.

I am looking for ways to use up a zillion flowers...perhaps this would work for me but my flowers are much smaller so may put 3 together instead.
