Mother's Day

Front
Open
In addition to the challenges I will be entering, I also challenged myself today. I have had the butterfly pivot design die from Karen Burniston for quite a while. so I decided that I would use it for my challenge card. My entire base card is made from two-sided design paper (Heartfelt Creations). I did adhere two half sheets together for added sturdiness. Once I die cut the pivot butterfly and its layers, I stamped the flower on the front using the distress marker direct to stamp technique. The front and inside sentiments are all from Rogue Redhead Designs.
I am entering my card into several challenges: Tuesday Throwdown -- special lady; Simon Says Wednesday challenge -- spring flowers; Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations -- Mother's Day; Artistic Stamper -- in the garden; Simon Says Work It Wednesday --patterned paper; and Classy Cards 'n Such -- Mother's Day (CCnS carries the distress pens, Heartfelt Creations stamps, and much more.)
