Spring has sprung and part one of raising my butterflies! :-)

For this project I used a Gorjuss girl image stamped in Memento and coloured with promarkers, Yellow Coredinations card cut with my slice, and white card cut with a Nestibilities label through a Cuttlebug, Papers and embellishments (button and gems) from the Papermania Verde 'Capsule collection range', Wooden filigree butterfly, paper roses, paper petals, a pearl and finally a yellow and a green polka dot ribbon.
I wanted a spring feel as I am so fed up of winter! I thought the Verde collection paper and embellishments suited this well, and used yellow to brighten it up.

I took delivery of my Caterpillars yesterday so I thought I would try and take photos and share with you their life cycle-I will try and take a photo every day-they grow really quickly! I apologise for the photo quality but they live in a little pot with acetate circles so difficult to take good photos-and I dont want to compromise their environment by undoing their habitat too early. They are so cute-they will grow up to be Painted lady butterflies-I raised five of them last year as well and it was so interesting and fun too!

Thank you for looking and I hope you like my little caterpillars too! :-)
