A Little Kindness Goes a Long Way....

Hi there!
I hope all is well with you!  I couldn't resist playing along with City Crafter Challenge this week!  Such a pretty inspiration photo!  The challenge calls for blue, green, and a splash of red on your project. 
And, here is my card...

For my card, I started with a light green card base and paired it with white and blue.  I made a tag and distressed the background with ink.  Dots were stamped in blue and green inks.  The leaves and butterflies were fussy cut.  Red gems were added to the butterflies.  I sprayed Perfect Pearls Mist in turquoise for a shimmer effect.  Not sure if you can tell very well in the following photo, but in real life it's very pretty.

Thank you for dropping by!  It's appreciated...take care!
