Spring is in the Air

Let’s move on from Christmas to spring. The sentiment on this card is Swedish for “Spring is in the air”. I first thought I’d emboss it in gold, but decided that copper embossing powder would make it stand out a bit more. The entire front of the card is from a paper from DCWV’s old collection Mariposa. I adhered a couple of stripes of thin glitter washi, and mounted the paper on copper metallic paper, then on a green metallic cardbase. I find taking photos of shiny blingy things is so difficult, but I tried my best.

With it’s theme, this card is perfect for QKR Stampede Challenge #326 – Spring is in the Air. Also That’s Crafty – Bling It Up Challenge. For Just Us Girls Challenge #386, I had thought of going for both the butterfly and the lime green color, but I ended up using only the butterfly theme.
