Ima Butterfly

Hello, hello!

Today kicks off March previews over at All That Scraps and we are starting with the newest Swiss Pixies by CC Designs. Considering the time of year, are you surprised that it's all about some springtime fun? ;)

For my card I absolutely couldn't wait to ink up little miss Ima Butterfly. Talk about amazing cuteness! I just love her pose and how it looks like she is trying to take off into the spring sky for a quick zoom around the garden. Rather than going with Easter-like pastels I instead thought that she would look smashing as a bright and happy daffodil... the quintessential spring flower if you ask me. And I even found these old silk daffodils in my stash to pull the look together. Then I finished the card off with one of the great new Spring Logo stamps that are being released this month too.

Ok, there are plenty more new stamps to check out so be sure to flutter on over to the ATS blog and see all of the wonderful preview cards from my ATS teamies! And all of the new stamps will be available for purchase on Friday. :)
Later gators!

Hi Amy. She is so cute and I just love that you went with the bright yellows and greens with her. She does remind me of a Spring Daffodil. This is very very sweet indeed.
