Magnolia-licious February Challenge/A Spoon Full of Sugar #91

Howdy! I hope you are having a great weekend.

My card today is for multiple challenges. A Spoonful of Sugar's challenge #91 is to make a project for Spring. Magnolia-licious Highlites February Challenge is to make a Wiper Card. I am also including it in the Our Creative Corner Challenge - Try a New Technique and the ABC Challenge - One (use one paper, front and back okay). Here is my card...

and here is it open...
Stamps: Chasing Edwin, Summer Background, Butterflies and Dot Butterflies (Magnolia)
Ink: Memento, Copics
Paper: Taken With Teal, Twitterpated Collection (Imaginisce), Soft Sky, Teal Vellum (Letters)
Accessories: Cricut Mini Monograms, Flower Soft

When I first saw the challenge, I had the idea of Edwin chasing butterflies and the butterflies flying up out of the card. This was the result. How fun is this card? It is super interactive, bright and springy. It is such a happy card. You just have to love those sweet Magnolia stamps. I used just one piece of paper from Twitterpated, and I did use both sides. This was a new technique for me, but it will probably not be the last time I make one of these cards. They are just so fun.

I hope you have a wonderful week!
