Happy Friday I hope you all had a good week. I was at the craft store yesterday and saw this lovely paper stack called Butterfly Garden. Oh my goodness the papers are so lovely delicate and floral. I have probably walked past this paper stack a thousand times and just never noticed it. It has lots of butterfly papers too so I just had to buy this since I don't really own anything quite like it.
I needed to make a Mother's Day card for my mum and I kept putting off so I was inspired to make the card with these new papers. I kind of threw this together late last night. The background paper on the card is a very delicate aged pink with little touches of gold but it is not getting picked up in the picture. The photo does not do it any justice really go and see this stack for yourself if you like the look of it.
I used the True Wishes stamp and the sentiment is from the Mother's Day Daisies stamp set both from Unity. I stamped and heat embossed them with white embossing powder on to vellum then just backed it on to some layered card then some lace. I tied some twine before I stuck it to the background. Finally I added some little gold hearts just to finish it off.
I need to go and get this in the mail now :) Mother's Day is next weekend in Scotland.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
