Blogger's Challenge 98 - Mother's Day Card

The Blogger's Challenge for this week is Mother's Day. I should also note that this is another submission for the Magnolia-licious Make Your Own Tilda Butterfly challenge.

Here is the Mother's Day card I sent to my mom.


Stamps: Tilda with Flower Jeans, Summer Background
Ink: Memento, Copics
Paper: Garden Green, Paper Pizazz Bright Great Backgrounds and pink vellum (wings), Basic Grey Two Scoops (background)
Embellishments: Martha Stewart punches (butterflies, fence, scallop edge), Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterflies die cut, Stickles
Other notes: I cut out the wings with the Beautiful Butterflies die cut in both the Paper Pizazz and the pink vellum. I then used my Xyron to attach the vellum to the background paper to give it a softer look.

I like how this normally sitting Tilda seems to be skipping to take flight as a butterfly.

I used Stickles on the butterflies to make them pop. I used beads to create the body.

I also used Stickles on the sun to make it shine.

I carried over the papers to the inside of the card and used the Top Note die for my message. I added a little butterfly on the inside of the card as well.


To all you moms out there, I wish you a very Happy Mother's Day! I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
