Mother's Day Card

Well, the calendar says Mother's Day is this Sunday - boy did that sneak up on me!!  So I set out to make a few simple cards - quickly, so I could get them in the mail in time!!  I decided to use the Butterfly Thinlet stamp set again but used the smaller butterfly this time.

I had a different design in mind when I set out, but this is what I ended up with.  I was going to do some embossing and put the butterflies on one side, but I wanted my greeting on the front.  So, I decided to put some ribbon down one side and scatter my butterflies like they were flying around the greeting.

I was happy how they turned out.  I used Very Vanilla for my base card as well as for my layer.  The butterflies are stamped in Old Olive, Pretty and Pink and Wisteria Wonder and then die cut.  I used a Mother's Day greeting on the inside that I found years ago in the $ bin at Michael's.  The ribbon is half white and pink satin and I placed a few rhinestones on the butterflies to dress them up for the occasion!

It looks like we're going to have a beautiful weekend!  Everyone in the Pansy Patch would like to wish all the Mom's out there a very Happy Mother's Day!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

Oh, my goodness, those butterflies are sooooo pretty! I had to take a good look up close and personal so I could really enjoy them. I absolutely LOVE these cards! Very feminine and sweet and just perfect for Mother's Day!
