The Best of Times

The sun is out today, birds are chirping and I can almost smell spring in the air. I will be so happy when the snow melts and things start to grow and turn green.
Today I'm sharing with you all, my very first Magistical Memories Project. I received my design team goodies and my jaw dropped to the floor. You see, I've always love chipboard and grungeboard, but this has now turned into something much bigger than love lol. I've never SEEN so many different shapes. From Gorillas to swirls, picket fences to beetles and EVERYTHING in between.  If you are looking for chipboard, Magistical Memories is the place to go and the prices are CRAZY AMAZING!!!
I think I waited about 10 minutes after opening the box to start creating, and since my mind is on the arrival of Spring, a card made with a green base was just the start.

For this card I used the Til de Swirl (cut in two), butterfly and scalloped photo corners (cut to make border)
The butterfly is painted with Glimmer Mist, then heat embossed with a Zebra stamp and Zing embossing powder. An underlay of patterned paper adhered to the bottom finishes it off.
Both the photo corners and the Til de Swirls are painted with Ranger paint daubers in Black/Pearl.
Now doesn't this card get you in the mood for Spring and Summer? I'm looking forward to seeing the bulbs I planted last year come up through the ground and start to flower. It will be a butterfly friendly place for sure. The Best of Times
