mother's day blessings...

Hello friends!!  Stopping in with a card for... yep... a couple of challenges, lol!  What else do I post on this blog but cards for challenges!   This time is it for the current Paper Players challenge (a sketch) and the new color combo from Color Throwdown.  The Color Throwdown combo is a lovely spring one of aqua, pink and green.   When I saw the Paper Players sketch I knew I wanted to use the medium sized butterfly from my SU! Butterflies Thinlets set.  I die cut the butterfly from Aqua cardstock (I think it is SU!'s Pool Party) and then die cut the small butterfly from white cardstock and stamped it with the corresponding butterfly from the SU! set Butterfly Basics.  I adhered the two together and added an aqua sequin.  The banners were die cut from pink cardstock using the MFT fishtail flag stax die.  I used another stamp from Butterfly Basics to create the top portion of the card.  Layered everything up, added a few more sequins and the sentiment (from Verve) and I was done.  This will be going to my mother in law for Mother's Day.  Now I just need to make something for my mom!  Also posting this to the new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.

 
 
Thanks for stopping by...
