This week's Paper Craft Crew card map challenge is a fun one, it makes me think (and long for) Spring!
And although there is a butterfly image on the map I decided right away not to use a butterfly. I decided that I would use a bee from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.
And bees and flowers go together so I searched though my stamp sets and die-cuts for a floral image. My first attempt used the Pansy Punch and the Flower Shop stamp set but once I stamped and punched I realized the flower was too small for the size of the bee.
So back to the drawing board - saving the punched Pansy for future card of course!
Then I spied my Daisy Delight stamp set and thought I would give it a try next. Much better - I decided one Daisy was not enough so I stamped and punched two daisies for a layered look. The size of the daisy fit better with the size of the bee so the elements were decided upon.
Next the card base. I chose one of the patterned cards from the Tutti-Frutti cards and envelopes pack to match the Daffodil Delight ink I used for my daisies. If you haven't seen the inside of the envelopes you are really missing out! (so cool)
At this point things came together really well and my card map challenge was complete. I debated on the ink color of the phrase. Do you think it is ok that the it doesn't match the envelope liner exactly?
