Spring Pastels

Here's a card made with 3 challenges in mind.  CAS-ology and the current challenge at the Simon  flickr group wants Spring cards, and Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge asks for pastels.  I'm all over it!

Butterfly Thanks

supplies: white and cotton candy cardstock, Simon Says Stamp Butterfly Drift die, papers from Basic Grey's Vivienne and Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka and Let's Polka, Mon Amie pads, Wplus9's Hand Lettered Thanks, pink and yellow sequins

I cut the butterflies out of cotton candy for the frame, and the 3 other papers for the various butterflies, bending up the 3 flowered butterflies for some dimension as I glued them into the frame.
