Happy Easter

Just Magnolias challenge this week sounds "Anything Goes" with the option of adding buttons. The option gave me a bit of a headache, 'cause buttons are one of those things I rarely use. I have a big box of buttons, and often look at them and try to use them, but I never seem to find a place for them in my cards and projects...
But when I found Kort o Manias sketch, I also found the perfect use for the buttons :)
I wanted to make an easter/ springcard, and had already found the image and the colours and the papers I wanted to use, so with this sketch everything fell in place.
As you can see I've used my new butterfly punch from Martha Stewart - I simply love her punches and have already planned my next buy :) The butterflies and some of the flowers are painted with"Glimmerglam Glitterpaint", and are so delightfully sparkly - I really like it when it shimmers - LOL
For the sentiment on the outside I chose to write "God Påske" (happy easter) by hand, as I couldn't find any stamps, rubons or letters that fitted the way I wanted them to...

I decided to make the inside with a simple twist of the sketch, and couldn't resist to put a butterfly here as well.
