ATSM Challenge #280 - Photo Inspiration

Just looking at the inspiration photo for this week's Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge reminds me spring is around the corner for those of us in North America.  It's a comforting thought, especially where I live in Minnesota.  Our days are getting longer and we've had a break a couple of times recently when the temps have been nice enough to leave my long puffy down coat at home!

My card uses a butterfly from Altenew's Bamboo Rose Stamp Set, a Spellbinders Overlapping Circles embossing folder, and the Faith Wings sentiment from Impression Obsessions.

Using the white layer cake in the top left photo as my inspiration, I die cut the card base and embossed the right portion.  The butterflies were colored with Copics and fussy cut.  The sentiment is a perfect companion and the Calypso Coral ink adds a nice pop of color.  I'm just not sure about the sequins!!  
                  I hope you will take a peek at the DT inspiration here and then join the ATSM Challenge this week!
