Mother's Day Butterfly Card

WOW, do I put things off until the last minute! I finally finished my mother's card yesterday morning, lol. She loves brown, gold, ivory (off white) and butterflies. I searched my stash and was quite surprised when I had hardly any brown! I was able to use the lovely butterfly paper from DCWV called Mariposa. I was also lucky enough to find a package of plain glitter paper that matches this butterfly paper perfectly the other day. It is also called Mariposa.

The butterflies are from Kitchen Stink Stamps. This set is 3 step. I just love their stamps! I stamped the last layer in versa mark and embossed with gold. Made 2 for each layer, adhering the top layer with dimensional. then added some Swavoski gems.

I do wish the gems were a gold tint instead of silver, but wanted to use the best I had for my mother :o) She did love it, which is nice :o)

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

Mother's Day Challenges:
Creative Card Crew: OR flowers

Other Challenges:
Cute Card Thursday: Chocolate (color, theme or embellies)

I hope you all have a superb day! hugs,
