Springtime Impressions, Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

The Artisan Design Team are really releasing their inner artists this month! Follow today's blog hop and be inspired to get creative with the newly released Garden Impressions product suite.

For my cards here, I let that gorgeous Impressionist art inspired paper pattern do the hard work and cover the entire card base!  Then I added some of my favourite layering elements, including a piece of split and torn cardstock, and that gorgeous Springtime Impressions butterfly!

I loved how the design turned out so much I couldn't resist making a few extra, as well as trying out an alternate colour combo.  What do you think - green or pink?
