~ Banana Frog Hop! ~

It's the 30th, end of April and time for another frog hop with the gals from Banana Frog. The theme for this month's focus on Spring, well, since we are in April now and we have been having some good weather (pray it lasts). My offering is a card, not just any card but a tri-shutter card! Been seeing them on the net and decided I had to attempt one. Here's my card: 

I celebrated Spring with an array of flowers and butterflies. 

The card when it's opened!
 The middle part was left blank (so that I can add name and sentiment at a later date when I've decided what I want to use it for). 

The flowers were stamped and cut and decorated with lace, brad and bling!

The butterflies were covered with diamond glaze and decorated with gems.

I've used a variety of stamp sets namely, Build A Daisy, Tropical Garden and Butterflies & Swirls in creating my card. Instructions for my card can be found here

Thanks for hopping through. Do drop by the Banana Frog blog tomorrow. It's Banana Frog's birthday and there are lots of surprises in store! Your next stop is Debbie! TTFN!
