That beautiful hyacinth stamp belongs to a friend and I stamped 
a couple of images last time we stamped and shared together.  
I should have noted who made the stamp, but I didn't.

The butterfly is from Papillon Potpourri,
stamped in black, colored with markers and punched with the Bitty Butterfly Punch.

I hope you'll join us at Addicted to Stamps
with your CAS card.

Thanks for visiting.

Enjoy!

Congrats on a well-deserved honor! This card is beautiful, and I never thought of putting an overlay through an embossing folder. I'll have to CASE that *wink*

Bonnie, I love the Blue Bells, they are such an old fashioned flower and remind me very much of the country side when I was a child. A definite sign of spring. I love how you have used them on your card. Gorgeous.

Beautiful card !!! I would love that Grape Hyacinth stamp.

Faith A said...

Congratulations, well deserved GDT.

Your card is really beautiful

Marisa said...

Whooo hooo! congrats on the GD :) Lovely card using the negative space.

Susan said...

No butterflies in my garden yet, but those exact flowers have just started blooming. I noticed you put a question mark beside "hyacinth" in your supply list so I assume you're questioning what type of flower it is - in case you want to know, it is actually a "grape hyacinth" which is a smaller flower than a hyacinth and does not have the wonderful smell of a hyacinth. The librarian in me just has to answer questions, even though I'm retired :))

Susan said...

Forgot to say congratulations on being asked to guest design for ATSM! And I love the card - it is so perfect for spring (my favourite season).

Sandy said...

Oh my gosh Bonnie this is really gorgeous - I want a tutorial!!
Anyone is lucky to have you design for them - they know a good thing when they see it!!

Congrats, Bonnie - that's wonderful news! And your card is just gorgeous - that hyacinth stamp is to die for. If you ever find out who makes it, please let me know (cos I always need another excuse to buys stamps!)

How cool to be asked to be a guest designer! You knocked it out of the park with this gorgeous CAS card. It is just stunning!!! That butterfly! Oh my!

MaryH said...

Since hyacinths are a bloom I especially love (they smell divine when they are inside), really like this card. Love the soft colors you've achieved on the blooms, and especially the way you have presented the stamp. Simply gorgeous. Congrats on your assignment. They picked a great GDT let me say. TFS & Hugs
