Spring Butterflies are Here!

Hello, and happy Tuesday, everyone!  Spring is being very slow in coming here in NW WI.  In fact, we're having snow showers again today.  I'm afraid the only butterflies around are those I create myself on paper.  This is the last week for this term with The Cutting Cafe, so we can make anything we wanted.  Thinking spring, I decided to make this:

I used the Butterfly Shaped Card template and cutting file from The Cutting Cafe.   I re-sized the butterfly a couple times to get the smaller layers. 
The papers on this card are from My Mind's Eye Collectible.  The sentiment is from a Close To My Heart stamp set.  I used a Creative Memories heart punch.  The pearls are from my stash.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my 2 terms with Regina and The Cutting Cafe.  The experience has been very rewarding. And, fortunately for me, Regina is changing the structure of her team so I will be able to continue.  See you next week!!!! Yeehaw!
