Spring Bringer

HAPPY MARCH!

I have taken a bit of a break from blogging, but not from creating. Over the next couple weeks, I will have some new projects to share with you. 

Today, I am sharing a project I made for Designed to Color. They are having a Birthday Bash this weekend, and I am joining their challenges. 

The first challenge is Tic, Tac, Toe...



I chose the first column, Purple, Ribbon and Bling. Here is my card...


Distress Ink
Paper by K&Co
Butterfly embellishment from Joann
 Patina paint


***

I have recently discovered Patina paints for use on metal. I am in love! The butterfly is a brass embellishment that is colored with Patina paints. Oh boy, a new toy!

I am also entering this card in the CLP challenge using their sketch...


...and the following challenges...
 7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Anything Goes!
Whimsy Challenge - Add Metal
Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by today!
