SAB Spring Card

Hi Everyone,
As soon as I saw the SU SAB DSP I thought of Spring. I just love that SU offered paper and ribbon this year in addition to stamp sets.
The flowers are from the SU SAB Botanical Blooms set. To make the fence posts I cut strips of white card stock 1/2" x 2" and used the SU tab corner punch to create the points. The cross bars of the fence are cut at 1/4" wide. The background is Bashful Blue and the grass is Certainly Celery. I used a piece of the SAB DSP for matting. The butterfly was punched (MS) from the same paper and attached with a pop dot.
Isn't the fence gate opening adorable? (Sorry for my finger being in the way!) The saying stamped behind the gate is also from the Botanical Blooms set.
Well, I hope you like my SAB Spring card as much as I do. I was quite pleased with how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by.
