Cuttlebug Spot Challenge 23: Celebrate Spring




Here is my card for the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge 23:

As much as we all look forward to temps cooling off at the end of summer, we long for temps to heat back up for Spring. That is what inpspired the sentiment, "Brrrr" ing it! :) Here is what I have done: I used the Cuttlebug Embossing folder D'Vine Swirls on the yellow cs, the lavender cs (and punched scalloped photo corners with the Paper Shapers punch) and on the white cs for the base layer of the sentiment; also, on the yellow flower. I used purple ink to accent the edges of the white card as well as the other white layer. I am new at this paper piercing thing and tried using a swirl stencil to paper pierce the right side of the card. The butterfly is a Hiedi Swapp (acetate) ghost. I used purple alcohol ink with a silver mixative on it to give it some color---see close up pic. Let me know what cha think...............
