Spring Moxxie Blog Hop.

 Hello and good morning...
Happy Friday!!!!! 
Welcome to the Moxxie Spring blog hop that is going on.

I used the Springtime collection and decided to go with a "messy" spring card instead of something clean.

I used the SPR-1522 Take Flight paper for my main background, and felt it was too busy, so I spread gesso over the background. Next I took a mask and added three or four different color mists until I got the look I was going for (I used a teal, light green, yellow, and deeper aqua mist)

I also punched out some butterflies, and then used a bit of mist on my finger and spread it on the butterflies to add a bit of color, and topped it off with some bling in the center:
