For my Mum


Today hasn't been a great day - feeling a bit rubbish and didn't have the best day at work. I'm completely shattered so this will just be a super speedy post as I really need my bed. 

I've got a card for the Paper Players' challenge this week. The challenge this week is to make a "mother" card - seeing as American mother's day is this Sunday it fits well although British mother's day was back in March. Anyway I haven't actually shared either mother's day cards I made for mum or mother-in-law so I thought I'd share one I did for my dear mummy!

Stamp Set: Something to Celebrate (retired), Beautifully Baroque
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Versamark
Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, Crisp Cantaloupe
Punch: Bitty Butterfly, Elegant Butterfly
Big Shot: Beautiful Butterflies
Accessories: Subtles Buttons, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Pearls
Other: White Embossing Powder

My mum likes butterflies so I thought a pretty card with lots of layered butterflies would be perfect. The baroque stamp just adds a really elegant touch to this card. 

A multitude of pearls, white embossed sentiment and button in the centre just make this a wow card. 

Sorry to be so brief, I'm off to bed, have a nice evening, I'll be back tomorrow! 

Happy Stampin',

  2. Oh, what a pretty card, Amanda! I love the colors and that gorgeous layered butterfly. I'm sure you Mum loved it! Thanks for playing along with us at The Paper Players this week, and hope you feel better soon!
