Lilacs in Winter and other Flowering Projects

It's Wednesday, the middle of February and I'm thinking of spring! It is still officially winter, but with Stampendous and my teamies we are sharing lovely lilac projects!!!

Stop by Jamie Martin's blog as well as the Stampendous blog for more inspiration.

I took creative license on a sketch challenge as well, because I thought those butterflies work perfectly for the three stacked elements. You'll have to go over to Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge forum to get the details for Sketch Challenge 632!

And now for a quick list of supplies and instructions.
