Here's the Design Team:

For today's card I went with a spring/summer color theme to match the designer paper I chose for the background.  After stamping the main image and coloring with prismacolor markers, I lightly stippled Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the edges for a finished look before layering and adding white baby brads and placing on my card.  As an afterthought, I decided to add a saying in the right upper hand corner of the image panel before adding a small punched butterfly with gold ice stickles highlighting the center.  My embellishments consist of celery grossgrain ribbon, clip, and a handmade floral spray with gold ice stickles highlighting the centers.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
