Simon Says...April Showers and/or Spring Flowers ♥

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Easter! My sister and her hubby flew in the day before and we had a wonderful Easter! My parents are here too. So the kids have been having a blast! Nothing like having all of your family around. They will be here until the end of the week. So we have an entire roster of fun activities planned. :)

It's time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week's theme is...April Showers and/or Spring Flowers! 
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Memory Box. Oh, how I love Memory Box! So many beautiful dies to choose from!! But for this card, I am using the Lydia Butterfly Die. You can use the Sorona Butterfly Die behind it to make it a solid background, but I decided just to use the Lydia Die because I wanted that cut out look. The stamped sentiment is an older Memory Box Stamp.


I also used some Prima Coffee Break Cappuccino Flowers, a Doodlebug White Doily, some May Arts Natural Twine and some White Opal Liquid Pearls.


The papers are from the Bella Rouge 6x6 Paper Pad by Prima.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!




Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 




I am entering this into:

~ Virginia's View Challenge: Layers and Dimensions



I hope you have a week full of love, happiness and blessings!

Loving the background on this, Melissa! Also I like how the butterfly is a bit off the page.
