Needing some spring

Just some cards with lots of spring colors and themes. Spring is taking its sweet old time arriving here in northern MN, so, I am bringing spring inside! :)
I stamped the butterfly on a transparency with StazOn white ink. I used my scoring blade to get a fold in the middle. I adhered the butterfly with the Stickles I added to the wings. I had to keep holding it and adjusting it while it dried. But I can say that today, it is staying up on its own. Not a great design, but I am happy with the dimension of the butterfly.
Stamps-Papertrey Ink (Butterfly Kisses, Just Hatched)
PP, Ribbon-Making Memories
Gems-Hero Arts
Stickles-Star Dust

Pretty boring card, really, but the sun beams are actually the banners from the Its A Celebration stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I also used the small dot line from that set to stamp along the corrugated cardboard.
