{beautiful butterfly} card for Easter

Hi there blog friends!  I can't believe Easter is already this Sunday.  Where did all the time go?  Are you like me and still making Easter cards or have you mailed yours off? I quickly put this little Easter card together tonight and will probably have to make a few more of these and get them out in the mail by tomorrow.  I know...I'm totally getting a late start on these!  Oh well.  It's the thought that counts, right? Here's a full view of the card.
As you've probably observed (if you've visited my blog before), I love using the Pink and Green color combo!  It's such a happy and cheery color scheme!  And, lately, I've had fun making circle shaped cards, too.  You may think that this card looks complicated, but with the die cut and punches, it really does come together quite nicely!  The majority of the card is Stampin'Up!, though I did use a teenie bit of PTI. Here's the recipe for you:
{Beautiful Butterfly Easter Card}
All supplies Stampin'Up! except where noted
Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery
Stamp Sets: A Good Egg, Inspired By Nature
Inks: Old Olive, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Beautiful Butterflies Stampin'Up Exclusive Bigz die,Polka Dot embossing folder, 3 flower punch, Hemp Twine, Sherbet button (on butterfly); bright pink button{PTI}, and Large Polka Dot embossing plate {PTI}; white gel pen
Hope you like it!  Glad you stopped by!
