Happy Spring

One of my first attempts at the velveteen technique for this month's Hero Arts challenge.  Decided to go ahead & make it into a card even though the effect is more obvious using an image with thicker lines than the HA Flourish Background I used here.  However, I really liked the HA Silhouette Vines stamped over it using my neglected Kaleidacolor rainbow inkpad called Calypso.  The butterfly is stamped again, cut out & glued over the base image with the wings curled up & Stickles put on the edges & the body.  The greeting is by Stampendous!  The panel is mounted w foam tape allowing the punched border (MS) to extend beyond the edge of the card.  I'm also entering PaperCrafts March Gallery Challenge "here" since the theme is rainbows.
Don't miss the HA "10,000 Likes" giveaway "here" .  The prize is fantastic!
Thanks for stopping by & leaving me your thoughts.  I always enjoy reading them!
