To Someone Special

Good Afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
I hope all is well with you and you are having a good week so far.

I started a (long overdue) tidy up of my craft stash over the weekend. I am so pleased I did because whilst sorting through I came across the first stamp that I bought online - a few years ago now! I think I choose this sweet Sugar Nellie stamp because it reminds me of myself as a girl. I still have the same love of flowers and now I can see the resemblance to my youngest daughter. So, I decided to use this image for my Mum's Mother's Day card.
The gorgeous butterfly is from a stunning stamp set from Clearly Besotted Stamps, I think you are going to be seeing a lot more of these in the near future!


Items Used:
Stamp - Sugar Nellie Country Garden coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - Docrafts
Die-Namics Stitched Rectangles Stax
Seam binding, button and twine from stash.


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

The Sugar Bowl  - Mother's Day or Special Lady
CRAFT - Mother's Day/ For a Female
Crafty Ribbons -Anything Goes with Ribbon
In the Pink - Mother's Day/Card for a Special Lady (if not enough pink please feel free to delete!)
Stamping Sensations - Pretty in Pink
Craft Your Passion - Young at Heart
Butterfly Challenge - 3Bs - bows, buttons and butterflies


Thank you so much for stopping by to look at my card today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
Bye for now.
hugs

The butterfly is indeed stunning and your card design is gorgeous. I love those papers and have them in digi form, but my printer isn't serving digi papers well. :( Hopefully soon.

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
