May's Mystery Image Challenge

Hello Friends,
Here we are once again, continuing on the fun that our fearless leader
Jeanette- aka Forest Ranger (as she's best known on SCS) started way back !!
This is the tenth round and the fabulous hostess for this round is Linda. ♥
The images received each round are a complete mystery to everyone , and we are not allowed to post our finished cards until the 18th of every other month to keep the surprise from being spilled....*wink*
Linda gifted us with wonderful full card front style images....Very springy looking and serene - it is going to be interesting to see everyone interpretation of such mystical images.

I must confess that I was swamped at first and no ideas came to mind, then I decided to keep it simple and use the Spotlighting Technique with the immies received.

For that reason I sacrificed using a full image and punched out five different circles from it to use for spotting my cards (4 to send away and one for me to keep)
The inside of each card sports a cute li sentiment from SU and a glittery butterfly
I am still not too pleased with the end result of this card, but there is no use  crying now over spilled milk....sort of....LOL

Have a wonderful blessed day to YOU, who just took the time to stop by and brighten my day :o)

Ms P, these turned out awesome!!! I love the idea and how you made it look. Really!!!!

Just a thought....could you not use your circle punch on the actual image, as you would be putting down a layering layer that is larger than the circle punch? It could save having to stamp or use another image.

Oh, I am going to have to remember to CASE this one!

Super job!
