Didn't we just celebrate Easter a few weeks ago?...

Yes, we definitely did, and I posted quite a number of the Easter cards I had made for my own use and to be sold in the thrift store where I volunteer. In fact, when I started this card I had no intention of making an Easter card. But the colors seemed so very Easter-y to me.

I wanted to use one of the flowers I had made when creating the cards in this post. I found some dotted paper that had just the right shade of yellow in it, so I went with that for my background.

As you can see, the flower is popped up on a foam square. My little butterfly was made with a Martha Stewart punch.

The embossed turquoise panel was one from a pack by David Tutera, I believe. It was given to me, so I'm not 100% sure.

On the inside of the card, I added a double-stitched rectangle on which I had stamped my sentiment. I also stamped a little pink butterfly to mimic the dimensional one on the front of the card.

When you read this, we will be on our way home from our little RV trip. I hope to share a few photos with you in an upcoming blogpost.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Very pretty. The colors and textures all work together and do look very springish.

You're right....the colors do speak of Easter. However, it could be a "Happy Spring" card to with the colors. I love that dp with the colorful dots!

Yes - Easter colors for sure, and now you are one ahead for next Easter.
Hope you enjoyed your little getaway - I think maybe we all could use a little time away especially from the NEWS. Hope you are home safely.
