You make me smile

We just got back from swim lessons for the boys.  Z has gone from crying the entire 6 weeks while holding onto Daddy for dear life to saying that this is the best day ever!  He loved swim lessons.  Yay!  And watching them during lessons certainly made me smile - the youngest especially was a hoot.  

Lessons were at 8:30 and since we are all up and about now, I am getting the urge to go to Home Depot and pick up some flowers for a splash of color in the front yard.  Though it might be too early still - pretty sure we have not seen the last frost yet.  

Speaking of colors... I had just watched this video by Laura Bassen and I immediately wanted to try it out.  I even had the same colors she used and since I loved her card so much, I kept with the same colors.  I added two layers of vellum Memory Box Darla butterfly and then added the matching Memory Box Vivienne butterfly using the same watercolor paper.  My sentiment from Verve Fabulous You set was embossed using black detail embossing powder.

Very quick but fun card!
