Hello there! Thought I would pop by with another Mother's Day card to share! Yes a second card share from me in a week! My card class has brought back the love of paper crafting for me! I think the break did me good, with being so busy with wreaths if I take a break from creating wreaths to make a card I know exactly what I want to make and I create so much faster! While I did take a break from paper crafting, I didn't take a break from shopping I have a lot of unopened stuff today I am sharing a card this stamp set by Clearly Besotted Elegant Butterflies. This is my first set by them, I like it, it's a bigger set for not that much extra. While you all know how much I love flowers, my first love is butterflies. I find stamping backgrounds with stamps to be relaxing, to save time I "assigned" each butterfly a clear block and a color so no cleaning and messing up colors:
I used Hero Arts inks: Mint, Pale Tomato, Peach, and wet cement. I added the Mom die cut by Simon Says Stamp (doubled the cardstock than die cut kinda hard to get this intricate die cut out, maybe I wish it was thicker font) and anchored it with a velum strip. A pretty simple card but pretty.
Well it's a rainy gloomy day here! Chad drove Ariel to school this morning and than realized that she forgot her backpack! So he came back and is driving it to her, did I mention it's a 20 minute drive one way? :< I am off to work on some wreaths! My shop is even busier this week! :>
