For my card today I decided to use one of my Magnolia stamps that I love for Spring and Summer cards. This is the Tilda As a Butterfly stamp from the Chasing Dreams Collection. We don't have this series listed in the store yet but it will be coming soon :) I will be listing the brand new Once Upon a Time Collection in our store later today though! YAY! Here is my card for today...

I colored her with my copics. I am still a newbie at coloring pleats in clothes and after my markers dried I think it looked better than it did originally - LOL! So if you are trying new things with your copics, give the ink a chance to dry and you might like it better :) I am not quite sure about the yellow...I only have 3 colors and they are a little bright to me. So while the yellow is growing on me... I will just consider it like a little burst of sunshine in my Spring themed card  :)  The fancy corner embellishments are created using the La La Land Die - Filigree Corner Die.

Here are some close ups of my embellishments on the front...

My Metal Butterfly Charm

I decided to make this an easel style card. Instead of creating a one piece card front, I decorated the front with two seperate panels so when you fold it you still see part of the front with the designer paper and then the Spellbinders Floral Oval piece becomes the main centerpiece.

Here is a closer peek at the inside sentiment area...

I created the tag using the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Dies and the sentiment is from the new Delicate Words Die from The Greeting Farm. Love this! Those beautiful papers are from the Bildmalarna Flowers of Spring 12x12 paper. I also used some prima flowers that we will have in the store soon as well!

I hope you liked my card for today ...

Now I won't keep you any longer! Your next stop on the hop is the super talented...Dangina!  

Just in case you get lost along the way...  


Have a great day all!

A stunning creation, so beautifully crafted.


Laura this is just beautiful! You did awesome with the pleats! If you have a W copic, you might be able to tone down the yellow a bit. But I think it is amazing just as is!
