Good day

Temperatures have risen lately, it almost on average at 30° C. Though here in Africa we believe it is still spring since the rain hasn't arrived yet. Hopefully, it will rain soon, since everything is so dried out after winter.
Have won some digis lately at The Paper Shelter and I just wanted to make this for a friend for her birthday. The printed paper is from Burleigh Blue from DoCrafts and the embossed blue is from my stash. The die is Gold Ivy from Spellbinder. I used some wet embossing on the butterfly.

Challenges I'm joining:
Digi Choosday wk36 - Monochoromatic
Tuesday Trowdown #212 Recipe - 1 image, 2 papers, & 3 flowers
Crafty Cardmakers #122 - Make an impression - Dry embossing
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Charisma Cardz #20 - Lace & pearls
The Paper Shelter #173 - Embossing of any kind

Thank you and have a great day!
Hugs from Africa!
