Birthday Mailbox & Card & "Think Spring"

Hey yall, my Mom asked me to whip up something really quick for her to mail as a Birthday gift to her sister. She really like the mailbox I made her and my dad for Valentine's Day. Anyhew, in the midst of my mess. Seriously I'm starting to think I'm a scrap hoarder or something **sn: I know I'm not alone in this, so maybe I'm ok after all**. My Aunt loves butterflies like I do, so I did something really quick that I'm sure she'll love. Hope yall like it too. .Uh oh, I can't belive I'm saying this, but I didn't even use my cricut or gypsy for any of it.

Again I was working on short notice. I'll see what I can remember of the recipe:
Papers = DCWV (Blossom Butterflies), Recollections
White Prima Flowers = Recollections (inked up the edges)
Embellies = K & Company (Butterflies, Cake, Presents, Flowers)
Bling = (can't remember... Michael's multi-pak?)
Ribbon = Joann's
Stamps = Peachy Keen "Happy Lashes Assortment", Michael's $1 Stamp [Happy Birthday]

It was also suggested by a new friend and follower, Linda over at that I enter this into her sister's challenge on her blog at Over at  CREATIVE SISTERS MONDAY CHALLENGE #3 - THINK SPRING!!!  we were asked to make something/anything that says... "Spring". I think these butterfiles above of my Card and Mini-Mailbox fit the bill. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by. Smooches...
