Time to H{Ippity} Hop! 3/1/10

It's Monday, which means it's time for another H{Ippity} Blog Hop!  And it was such a beautiful sunny day here yesterday, I was in the mood for a card with a spring feel.... and here it is:

I have loved this butterfly image since I first saw the new Ippity What Matters Most kit... and I love this sentiment too!  I think it really portrays the fresh energy of spring.  I used an aqua brush and SU classic ink to watercolor the butterflies and added a prima flower using a dimensional.  I decided to keep the bling to a minumum to keep the soft feel of the card, something that is very difficult for me to do!  The paper is from one of my all time favorite packs - Basic Grey Wisteria... so pretty isn't it?   Don't forget I am selling Ippity Kits, and I have them all in stock for immediate shipment!  Just click on the Ippity Blinky, the Buy Ippity tab on top of this blog, or here:  I Want Some Ippity!  And don't forget to check out all the other great projects on the rest of the blog hop.  You will find a full list of participating blogs on the Ippity blog here: Blog Hop .  Have fun and Happy Stamping!
