Roll on Spring

Hi guys, it's raining here again today, I hear down south is having a drought, I wish lol!

for my card today I thought spring, summer weather, trees, flowers, butterflies, and no COAT lol,

This is again done with my re-inkers, I think I'm getting the knack more now lol, well hopefully!
the main shape is cut using a Grand nestie circle die, the I've used a smaller one to which I've added a Martha Stewart Butterfly punch too,
my image is cut using a nestie labels die,
the papers are all machine sewn, I gave my machine some lubricant the other day and I think it liked it, it seems to have stopped making all the weird noises it was doing, so much for a non oil machine lol!
I've followed Kylie's gorgeous sketch over at Magnolia Down Under and used Doo Hickey fence and grass dies for the middle strip,

The gorgeous butterfly is from some Pion paper, love these papers so want more!

The stamps at the top were from the paper pad Botanical by Prima,
Flowers WOC, I made the twirls using the stems,

The tree is by Memory Box and is a  Arboscello tree die, love it too,

MDU ~ Kylie's gorgeous sketch
Magnolia-licious highlites ~ spring is right around the corner

I'm back tomorrow with my Paper Play creation,
catch you later
 I have candy if your interested!
