Because today it does feel like spring!

All the stamps used in today's card are from Dimension Fourth, a British company that I discovered last year while attending a crafts show in Birmingham. They have lots of self-cling polymer stamps, a fabulous range of images at very reasonable prices and, very importantly, an excellent customer service.
Don't you think the stamps are beautiful? I got these ones recently and could not wait to play with them.
And I am very happy with the result: the bird house is adorable and the final card offers that spring/summer feel that I was looking for. The weather has been fantastic today and I feel optimistic -spring may finally be here!
I coloured the different images with Letraset Promarkers, and cut and layered some of them with 3D pads to give dimension. I added glitter to the butterfly wings and to the bird, as well as 3D embossing fluid, for extra dimension.
Today's card enters the following challenges:
Stampavie and More: butterflies
ABC challenge: S for sparkle
Stamp Something Challenges: layers
4x4 Friday: Spring garden
All Sorts challenge: In stitches
Sweet Stamping: In stitches
Penny's Paper challenge: Anything goes
Hope you like my creation, thanks for visiting my blog!
