Good Tuesday Morning Peeps.
Today is going to be a bit of a rough one. I will be attending my aunt's funeral this morning. This was my Mom's sister and the last of her siblings. They are all re-untied now. To top it off yesterday would have been my Mom's 80th birthday, so alot of emotions running around over here. Altho I wasn't very close with my aunt the last few years, since my Mom's passing, I have alot of good memories of her and her girls, my cousins, from childhood. :) I know her husband and children are hurting and I hope this card will bring them just a bit of comfort.
I used THIS card for my inspiration.
I started with a base of Concord Crush, 5 inches by 10 inches folded in half. I wanted to emboss my BG piece but since it was too big for the EF, so I came up with the idea to split the BG into two pieces. I used the new Wisteria Wonder card stock to matt the embossed pieces.
The stamp set used is the "Hello Friend", I stamped the image with wisteria ink onto whisper white card stock. The sentiment is from the "Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.
I used vellum to make the butterfly out of from the Beautiful Butterflies Die.
I added some whisper white satin ribbon and the retired two slot punch to bring the ribbon to the top of the image panel and tied a bow.
I added two basic pearls to the butterfly and called it done.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
