entering my card in:
Die Cuttin Divas - Challenge #110 Pastels

And once you remove the GC, you have this, which I thought would be a real sweet display in the baby's room or it could be added to the baby's scrapbook like a tag :)

Really Reasonable Ribbon - lace and twine
Hero Arts - stamp
Candy Buzz - font

Simon Says Stamp ChallengeApril Showers and/or Spring Flowers
Cute Card Thrusday - Challenge 264 - Butterfly kisses
Inkspirational - Photo inspiration challenge

As you can see the colors and the flowers inspired me, but instead of a blue sky I chose blue butterflies instead.
I love how you can use the LSD to get the butterfly wings to tilt up as much or as less as you want:
Ranger - Distress Paint
Hero Arts - stamps
Color Box Chalk - ink
Sakura - Glaze pen
Helmar - Liquid Scrapdots

I love this, the punky centre looks just perfect and the contrast of this baby pink with the dark pink flowers and butterflies is just stunning. Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational.

LOVE this card! The ink is so subtle and pretty. And do you know, a few weeks back I saw a card where the butterfly wings were up like that and I was stumped how they did it. haha OF COURSE! Silly me. Thanks for posting that, Sandee!!

Loved that baby carriage. What a clever idea for a card, then to add it to a Baby Book later. Nifty way to present a gift. Enjoyed immensely seeing your other projects. Great butterflies...lovely color combo too. TFS & Hugs.

These are so beautiful! I really love that the baby card can be added to the baby's scrapbook later. What a great idea!
