We need a little spring!

Can anyone make the white stuff go away here in January? Just went out and shoveled and looks like I will need to go out again before the night is done.  So....I needed something to get me thinking about warm weather.  Over at "Just Us Girls" Challenge Blog they had just the remedy I needed...

Then..I used the Retro Rubber Challenge Sketch at their challenge blog.

At first, I will be honest....I said orange with green and blue...yuck! But then when my card started to come together, I really loved the look.  So...thanks girls for the challenge!

supplies and recipe: paper-fern cs cut 41/4X 11 and scored at 51/2, bermuda cs cut 4X51/4 (amuse studio), white (recollections) cut 4 6/16 X 2 1/2, pumpkin pie (stampin up) I cut it 4 X 5 1/4 and then just tore around my white cs piece; inks: bellini and grass (amuse studio) and tuxedo black (memento); stamps: because of you (amuse studio); ribbon- sage(stampin up)

Here's a close up...
I stamped in the grass stamp pad and then would stamp a second time without placing the stamp back in the stamp pad for a lighter shadowy effect.  I used a stampin dimensional to pop the butterfly off the paper.  Something else I did that I haven't done in a very long time was sand and tear paper.  I just thought that it softened this card a little more, but it still stayed clean and simple.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Anyone else wishing for a little spring in their world right now?
