Butterfly Blog Linky Party

Good morning everyone.  I am so excited because Spring is coming to blogland today via BUTTERFLIES!!  That's right I was invited to be a part of Eva Dobilas' Butterfly Blog Party today.  Since most of us have been dealing with so much winter weather (snow, rain, cold, etc), Eva thought that it would be a good idea to warm things up with butterflies.  We all know that butterflies means that Spring is coming along with warm weather so I jumped at the chance to play along.
I love the look of panel cards so that is were I began my card.  The side panels are embossed using the Sizzix Best Friends embossing folder.  The center panel is embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  My butterflies were made with the Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly punch with some Kaiser rhinestones added for the bodies.  My sentiment is from the JustRite Elegant Frames - cling set, diecut with Spellbinders Labels 11.

If you are ready for Spring and warm weather, be sure to stop over at Eva's blog and check out all of the Butterfly cards "fluttering" through blogland today.  Anyone can join in so give it a try.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  Have a great day!!
