Hello and Happy Mother's Day! Today's card was created for my daughter for Mother's Day and I thought I would enter it into the latest Just Us Girls challenge. I kept this one pretty simple because I wanted the butterfly to take center stage. I stamped the smallest butterfly from a Hero Arts stamp set and colored it using various shades of purple Copic markers. I fussy cut the image out and inked around the edges with a Memento tuxedo black marker to give it a nice, clean look. I die cut a small piece of text paper from the Simple Stories Urban Traveler 6x6 paper pad using a stitched die from Gina Marie Designs. I mounted the die cut image straight onto my card panel and stamped the butterfly again so I could get the antennae. I put a mini glue dot in the center of the butterfly and some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals on the wings and mounted the butterfly onto the die cut panel. I added some clear Wink of Stella for some pretty shimmer and then colored a few rhinestones from Recollections purple using my Copics and added them to the body of the butterfly. I stamped Daughter from the MFT Girly Graphic T stamp set and then You're So Beautiful from the MFT Mother's stamp set. I mounted the whole panel onto so pretty purple cardstock from Hobby Lobby and added some faux black stitched lines around the outside edge and called this card done. I hope you like it!
