Mother's Day Butterflies

I thought I'd share this Mother's Day card I made a while ago.  We've had Mother's Day over here, but I know lots of you celebrate it this weekend.  To all you mums - have a wonderful day.  The card is made using the Hero Arts Flutterbies digikit - my favourite ever kit.  A bit of layering, a typed sentiment, some extras to cut and layer... done.  This card makes me feel full of the joys of Spring.
And this card is one I made for a colleague.  She wanted a Communion card for her little cousin and couldn't find one she liked in the shops.  My brief was: SIMPLE.  No frills. :)  I chose some beautiful digi paper by Vinnie Pearce (THIS kit), and added a typed sentiment and an image from THIS beautiful kit by Cocoa Studio.  
I literally had to restrain myself not to add some gems :)
Happy Weekend.  Hope you get some crafting time.

I clearly have been bogged down in work and family too much recently....its been a while since I've left you a comment and some loving. I am soooooo in love with this butterfly card that I'm logging onto the HeroArts site to download that digikit immediately I'm done commenting here. I love how you've perfectly lined them up and matched the colouring on each of them. And the font you've used for the sentiment is divine!!! xxxxx
