Theme Day Thursday - Spring Seasonal Cartridge

Hello, and welcome back to another

For today's project we could use either
Bears and Ducks or use any
Spring Seasonal Cartridge.  I chose to use
the Spring Fever Seasonal Cricut Cartridge.
This cartridge is filled with some of the best
spring images from various other cricut cartridges.

I had originally designed a totally different card, but then
I received a package from the wonderful
Inside my package of stuff I had ordered from her store,
(FYI, she has some fantastic prices!!) Erica had thrown in
some extra goodies.  She sent me some beautiful paper from
the Bo Bunny Back to Basics line.  I had to redesign my
whole card so I could incorporate this paper!
Here is a sneak peek.

I cut 2 different butterflies, one a side view and one a
full butterfly.  I cut the side view butterfly twice,
but I flipped one of them using my gypsy.
The bottom layer was cut from glitter paper and
the top layer was cut from DCWV paper.
Now, when I was running the top layers through
my xyron toapply adhesive, I accidentally ran on
piece in backwards!!  Oh my, what to do??  I did not want to
cut another piece.  So I decided to apply glitter to the side
 I accidentally ran through.  I loved the way it looked,
so I then ran the other two pieces through
the "wrong"side and applied glitter to them too :)
I beleive that I cut the butterflies out at 1.5"

The scroll that th butterflies are sitting on was cut
from the same cartridge at 4.5". 
The brown mat was cut using an MS border punch.

I finished the card up by adding a tag cut from the
Teeny Tag Greeting Stamp and Die from
My Creative Time and I addd some twine

Thanks for visiting, and please head on
to see what the rest of the design team has to share today.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, Kathy!! I wanted to stop by and let you know what I found out about the Cricut Craft Room can add them to your Gypsy!! I updated my Gypsy and I guess it had been a while since I've updated it because it took me the better part of 3 annoying!! But finally, after all the updates were complete, the cart I purchased in CCR was there!! I'm so excited because I really don't want to take the time to learn a new program when the Gypsy will do pretty much the same thing :)
