Things With Wings 1

Hello Crafty Friends!

So far April has shown its sunny side here in the UK, and I have a very easy, yet impactful card to share, thanks to the new Flutter Zen 1 and Flutter Zen 2 CUTplorations Layering Dies, two of a stunning range of new dies STAMPlorations are introducing with a month long celebration.

This means it is time for the Things With Wings Spring Blog Hop And Linky Party, 25 days of celebrating Spring with all things winged.

My card was pretty easy to make, I die-cut the filigree butterflies from card and the solid ones from vellum. I then cut a little panel of watercoloured card using one of the Stitched Snow Hills dies, die-cut the Sweet Spring Wishes sentiment and layered everything as shown finishing off with some sparkly flowers.

I am entering my card at:
