Clean and Simple Spring Card

I love a clean Spring card! It's refreshing to have a lot of white space. This card was so quick and easy, and I can totally picture a collection of these in multiple colors. What a great gift idea!

I used Papillon Potpourri and Summer Silhouettes for the main images. I just love these two sets, and they pair nicely together.
 The 'lattice' image from Summer Silhouettes is stamped in Old Olive. I used a lighter shade of green, Certainly Celery, for the butterflies. No hand cutting here; Papillon Potpourri has coordinating punches!
I layered my Whisper White card stock on top of Old Olive, and then onto Certainly Celery with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the butterflies with a dab of Tombo liquid glue to the middle, and adorned them with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
