Spring Pansies Scrapbook Layout

Had a "Good Friday" at the Dallas Arboretum where I photographed the Spring flowers in bloom like these Pansies.

Framed the photograph with purple mattingUsed Spellbinders for sentiment tag. Used Mark's Finest Papers sentiment "Happy Spring!" Added ribbon. Punched out Butterflies. Stamped MFP Butterfly stamp on the punched out Butterflies. Tried stamping them first & then punching but that did not work out as well. Punched out journal tag. Used calligraphy to add journaling.
