Shimmering Spring Butterfly

I’ve been on a butterfly kick lately. Spring always makes me think of new beginnings and butterflies embody that process. As they say, what the caterpillar thought was the end, the butterfly thought was the beginning.
The main piece of my card was created in the card candy class I attended. I’m not sure what I’ll use the card for, so I left off a verse. I do that most of the time so I can stamp an appropriate verse later.

I love the flowers and vines in the DP.
We are challenged to use some of those craft supplies we just had to have. I've been intriqued by the various color mists and bought a bottle of Smooch. I went on a dew drop binge as well and while the bottles are super pretty lined up, they do add to my creations.
As I mentioned, spring is all about new beginnings and butterfly season will be coming!
I used Vanilla Smooch spray over the front and inside of my card. I really love the shimmer it gives.
This is SO shimmery and sparkly in real life. In fact, my fingers are also shimmery!
