Hello my bloggy friends.  I hope everyone is having a great start to their week.
I made my first Spring Card of the year...
I used Cuttlebug's Once Upon A Princess for the embossing.
The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The border punch is from Martha Stewart.

The lacy cut was made with my Imagine, Twinkle Toes.
The flower in the middle is by Recollections.
The smaller flowers are Prima.

The butterfly is cut with my Marvy Uchida punch.
I love this punch! It embosses and cuts.
The pearls are Recollections.

Just a simple and sweet card.  I hope you enjoyed it.

  6. Elsa, this is beautiful--but wow girl--I can't believe you can make one card for that many challenges--amazing!
    I love lavendar, and I rarely see it on cards. I think my favorite touch of yours is the pearls in the center of the butterfly. That's a wonderful detail.
    PS I just love that photo of you with your cricut--your kids look soooo excited for you! Whata sweet family!
    Thank you soooo much for playing along in my Simply Sunday Challenge.
