The Paper Players - Spring has Sprung

Over at The Paper Players Blog 
 they have a new challenge 

You can play along here:

When I think of Spring I think of the first blooms, 
open windows, fresh breezes, birds & butterflies!

This week I used Tim Holtz / Sizzix

Here is the card I have created.

 I coloured the butterfly in blue & turquoise.
I die cut the coloured image & then die cut a butterfly shape from black.
I popped the butterfly up on top of the black shadow.

I did the same for the sentiment.

I then slightly curled up the wings to give it a bit of life.

Thanks for coming by to see my Spring card today.
