Just Thinking of you - Welcome Spring

Good morning my friends.  Another week is about to end and we're heading into a weekend. 
 I've had just a bit of spare time this week and have created a Double Display card using some of the new images and dies I received from Magnolia-licious.  I had a lot of fun creating this card.

I have made several of these cards in the past years, having no need to re-invent the wheel, I'm giving you a link to Norma Lee's wonderful tutorial.

This is the Belly Band to hold the card closed.  I used some elastic hair band material to wrap around the card. This is the front of the belly band.  This image is #3102 Forget Me Not Tilda but unfortunately she is not longer available. :-(

Here is the card partially opened. to show the three images I used. These images are all mini's.  From left to right is #250 Tilda With Butterfly Dress, #505 Stone Pathway and #261 Tilda With Hawaii Flower and finally #3005 Rubber Boots Tilda all from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. Again I'm sorry, they are no longer available. :-(

Unfolded you can see that I used lots of Butterflies and small punched flowers for accents on my card.  The two sentiments on each of the sides  are computer generated from Author Unknown.
It reads,
 "Flutter by, Butterfly Floating forever in the sky,
Kiss me with your petal wings, Whisper secrets, tell of spring"

One last look.  Here is the card and the Belly Band together.

Other items I used to create this card:

CS - Bazzill White, SU Baja Breeze, Xpressit Blending Card
DP - SU retired from Stash
Ink - Copic Markers, Memento Tuxedo Black, Adairondacks Coudy Blue and Shell Pink
Dies - Memory Box Bramble Circle; Spellbinders Labels 13, Labels 21, Classic Circles, Classic Scalloped Circles, Classic Rectangles, Classic Scalloped Rectangles, PS Mini Picket Fence
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch,
SU Mini Flower Punch
Pearls - Stash

I so appreciate your stopping by to see my little piece of art.

Enjoying the Journey,
Many Blessings
