Spring Bling

Here's a spring card based on the bonus sketch for 2Sketches4You.

The card also incorporates several other challenges.
Pile It On: Spring is Here
ABC Challenge: S is for Sparkle
Scrappy Frogs: Pick 3 (die cuts, embossing, sponging)
KL Stampin n Scrappin: Color challenge (browns, greens, and white)

Here's are closer looks at the bling, butterfly and ruffle. I inked the Cuttlebug folder with a sponge before I embossed, which created a softer look than inking after embossing.

It's easy to see the green on white on the butterfly when the pictures are bigger. Just click to enlarge.

If I had it to do over again, I would have sprayed the brown cardstock with gold glimmer mist... if the sprayer hadn't been clogged!

Cardstock: Bazzill, The Paper Company
Paper: The Paper Company, Paper Pizazz
Dies/embossing: Cuttlebug butterfly
Accessories: ribbon, rhinestones
Ink: Color Box ice jade chalk ink


  1. Pretty card! Love the embossed butterfly!

  2. Nice. I like the texture with the butterfly punch, and the bling of all of the rhinestones.
