Butterflies and Buttercups

Happy stormy Tuesday! We've had about 4 waves of storms roll through today. Nothing really too bad but lots of rain. I was hoping to get my tomatoes and peppers planted this week but that may not happens unless we dry out a little. More rain predicted later this week. I hope you got a chance to check out the new release of the May Doodle Pantry digis. Every month I think Laurie outdoes herself. My card tonight features another one of the new May digis: Buttercups.

I created this clean and simple card using the Buttercup digi image and added a sentiment from another Doodle Pantry set. The background paper is Basic Grey Origins. I used an EK Success punch to create the lattice and the butterflies are Cheery Lynn dies that I bought at Joan's Garden when I visited in march. The image was cut and embossed with Spellbinder's die.

Challenges that I am entering with this project:
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my project. I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.
