dreaming of spring

It has been SO cold here lately! Normally in December we get cold weather, like 30 degree cold, not the 9 degree high we had today! Yikes! So to make myself feel better, and slightly warmer, I made myself a sunny spring card. I stamped the butterfly image from Discover Your Wings on a piece of patterned paper and added some Christmas Red Stickles around the edges. No butterfly is complete without a blinged out body - can you say Bedazzled? haha! The sentiment is embossed with white emossing powder. I used Splitcoaststampers sketch SC258 for the layout and added a little chipboard flower for my other "die cut".

Thanks for stopping by!
