Good morning friends

It's Saturday, and that means there is a new challenge on the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our March Hostess is Rebecca Ednie and the talented Teresa Kline from Paperie Blooms joining us as our Guest designer. I've been a long time fan of Teresa's so I'm excited she can join us! Here is Rebecca's challenge:

April Showers bring May flowers! Please use some springtime flowers on your card or project this week! I can't wait to see all of your daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, crocuses, cherry blossoms and all the others I've not listed!

I chose a pretty Spring time floral patterned card stock from a new paper stack and of course I used the Hanging Charm Pull Tab for my card.

The top of the tab was extended then punched and tied with seam binding. The butterfly is hanging from a 2 ply of Baker's Twine which is sandwiched between another frame. The gold bling is simply decorative. The butterfly body was cut from a scrap of black velvet adhesive paper, then the wings were glittered after a little pen work.

Joset's banners were one of my early Spring purchases, and I've used one of them here with some more bling. The words were hand lettered.

When you slide up the tab, the greeting is revealed ...

The card is a full 7 x 5", so there was lots of room for embellishing. I did a little doodling on the card back, and this is where we will write our message. 

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C333.
