Paper Smooches SPARKS April Trend Watch challenge {post1}

Hello, friends:}

**After 9amEST--please click HERE or scroll up/down for my Mama Elephant challenge post! 
**After 6amEST-- please click HERE or scroll up/down for my Ribbon Carousel post. 

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The first week of the month is always a TRENDS WATCH challenge. 

This week we are inspired by the following photo:
There are SOOOO many Paper Smooches butterfly images and now dies-- that this challenge was super easy for me! I actually have three other cards that I want to share hopefully later this week:)

For my this card, I used the PS Butterflies2 dies along with a sentiment from the PS Spiritual Sampler set. LOVE these papers by KaiserCraft {Flora Delight}-- there are foiled and embossed papers! GORGEOUS:) I also love love love that glittered frame with the butterflies flying out of it!!  I think this card is a bit out of my comfort zone-- kind of shabby chic... or vintage but not vintage...either way, I think I nailed it:)
That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs and leave them some love

And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details!!!! This challenge ends April 7th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps-- did you see the new stamp sets??? I cannot wait to get them in the mail!!! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Savannah - yes, you "nailed it" with your stunning butterflies, glittered frame and perfect accompanying sentiment! Shabby chic, vintage chic, shabby vintage - I say GORGEOUS! Whoever receives this card will be touched by the thoughtfulness and creativity you've invested!
Your kraft bitty bags are also charming! I have a few little bags at home, so your techniques are on scrap-lift status!
Thank you so, so much for commenting on my PS Photo Inspired card. Your words definitely add to my confidence, while your projects add to my inspiration. You've been blessed with a creative, generous spirit; thank you for sharing these gifts with us!
Have a fantastic Friday!

This is so feminine and dainty, Sav! I love it! Such a cool thing that the butterflies are flying out of that frame.

I miss you, girl! Thanks for saying hello on FB recently. So good to hear from you.
