The theme for the forty-second Simon Says Challenge is things that remind us of spring.
Bright colored flowers always remind me of spring. Spring colors are always so fresh and vivid which is such a contrast from the gray days of winter. I used bright colors for my flowers and bright green for the stems. I imitated the bright flower beds I see planted in the spring.
I added butterflies that were punched out of bright pink cardstock using an old Martha Stewart’s punch.
This card is fairly simple no special stamping techniques and I didn’t add any special background because I just wanted all the flowers and butterflies to pop.
Hope you like the card.
