Mother's Day in the U.S. is just one week from today. Typically, I would save my Mother's Day card to share on the actual date, but since it was inspired by the Freshly Made Challenge, and the challenge ends tomorrow, here I am! My mother-in-law does not read my blog to my knowledge, so I think it's a safe move. It's a great sketch with lots of possibilities.
It's the beautiful "Butterfly Blooms" and "A Bit More Butterfly Blooms" by Papertrey Ink again. This time I embossed the butterflies in gold on vellum, I found the perfect piece of patterned paper in my stash and die cut it with a stitched oval from Papertrey's "Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical" die set.
I used the Simon Says "Reverse Polka Dot Background" stamp to create a subtle, tone on tone background and die cut that with a "Stitched Rectangle," also from Simon Says. I then layered the pieces onto a Vintage Cream card.
The sentiment from "Delightful Dahlias" (PTI) was embossed in gold and die cut with an old Spellbinders banner die. A few beautiful new-to-me sequins from Simon Says "Sparkle and Shine" collection finished it off. Here's a closer look:
