Butterfly for Mom and the TGIF#52 Challege

Before I get to today's card, I'd like to thank Joanne over at The Paper Players for choosing my card as a pick last week. Here's the card that won her over.

Last night I shared one of the Father's Day cards I prepared for my class.  Today I'm showing off one for the Moms.  I'm entering it in the TGIF #52 Challenge.  Their theme is "Love You Mom".  Here is my entry:

And here is the TGIF Challenge Banner

My card uses a Blushing Bride card base.  The panel down the middle is So Saffron.  The banner is punched on either end using the Triple Banner Punch.

I placed a half inch strip from the Designer Series Paper stack horizontally on top of the banner.  I placed a small gold doily on top of the paper strip.

My butterfly is made of 2 parts.  The bottom is a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the English Garden pack.  I die cut it using the Bold Butterfly Framelets.  The top part of the butterfly is cut from the Butterflies Thinlets Dies and then sprayed with a clear acrylic spray to give it shine.

The sentiment is from the Watercolor Wings stamp set.  I love this sentiment!  Now that my mom is gone, it's the little things we shared together that I cherish as memories.

I hope you like my card today!  Please leave a comment below and subscribe if you like what you see.

Happy stamping!
