Spring Bling-A-Ling


Today I a part of a Spring Bling-a-Ling Blog Hop!  That's right -  the theme is Spring with some "bling!"  Don't you just love adding bling to your projects?

We do have some giveaways for you too!  Our hostess, Suzanne, is giving away the following to one lucky winner:

To be eligible, you just need to stop at everyone's blog and leave a comment - easy right?

I am also doing a giveaway to one lucky "hopper"! - a package of "Bitty Sparkles" from Close to My Heart.  To be eligible to win, you just need to stop at everyone's blog and be sure to leave a comment.

Here's my project:

I used a paper pack called Chantilly because the colors remind of me of Spring.  I used our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the card shape and the butterflies.  You can find the card shape on page 41, C1, Card, < Bttrfly1 > which I cut at 4 1/2".  The second layer with the butterfly cutout can be found the same page: C1, Shift, Card, < Bttrfly1 > and was cut at 4".  The butterflies themselves were cut at 1 1/4" and were also on page 41, C1, Shift, Bttrfly1 >.

The sentiments on the inside and outside of the card as well as the tiny butterflies came from a stamp set called A Garden.  I then blinged my card up using some Bitty Sparkles (the bling on the main butterfly on the front) and some leftover pieces from our Sparkles Clear Flourishes set (I used this around the butterfly).
