TSTR #107: Bright & Beautiful Spring AND JustRite #69: Spring Fling

I set out yesterday to create a card for The Shabby Tea Room challenge (and realized along the way that I could use it for JustRite's current challenge also), but had no idea this was going to be literally such a 'challenge' for me?! Why is it sometimes you just cannot come up with papers/colors that coordinate and are exactly what your mind tells you they should be?! Sooo frustrating!
After many hours, I did achieve a card that I really LOVE and though it's a bit more simple than I first imagined, I'm quite sure my MIL will still love it as it has a lot of elements I know she likes: tree, bird, eggs, butterfly, lace and bling -- so that's what really matters! I still hope to have another JustRite card done before the deadline on Wednesday, but holding my breath it comes together much faster than this one! ;~)

Stamps: JustRite's Spring Words & Backyard Birds
Ink: PTI's Dark Chocolate
Paper: Making Memories Boho Chic; Kraft & cardboard from stash
Embellishments: PTI butterfly from With Sympathy; Recollections Bling; Hobby Lobby Lace; Various Copic Markers to color main focal piece/lace

Oh Marge,
This is just so very pretty. I just love everything about it. I am sure your MIL will love it too.

Sure understand how sometimes you have an idea and it just does not come. Sitting with some butterflies and can not come up with the right paper. Your card turned out very pretty and your MIL will most likely love it.
