"I do love butterflies,I do love butterflies, I do love butterflies... have you already noticed it? i put butterflies on almost every project i made.

The idea of this card came out because i wanted to send to a friend who lives so far from me. How can a card fly so far from my home without wings? of course with a magical light blue butterfly on it!" ~Nico Scrap

"I decided to create this little Easter card using one of my favourite collections Once Upon A Springtime. I created my card a little different to normal, it is the same size as a normal 6x4 inch card but the cluster on the front is what opens up." ~Joanne
