Welcome to day two of the hop!   We are sharing "Spring Things" today.  I have several photos to share with you.

On the front I added clouds from last month's set "Rain Clouds".  I measured how wide the fence is and cut a piece of card stock double the amount of the fence.  I scored the card stock in the middle, folded it and stamped the fence so I had a mini card.  I cut around the fence on the front and just cut straight across on the back which you can see when you scroll down.  I love the butterflies in this set and check out the caterpillar at the corner of the fence!

The fence opening: 

Happy Spring!

Inside the card: 

For this card I chose to give the Tulips all of the attention!

A simple inside: In reality the inside red is the same shade as the outside.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you will check out all the beautiful inspiration my teammates have created for you and leave a comment for your chance to win today's stamp set!
