Well, my card was ready for yesterday but not my post. Hmmm… Well, it happens, I guess. My boys and I had a quick get away this weekend to Orlando. Unknown to my mom who lives there, we had a surprise birthday party planned for her on Saturday!! It was such fun and we managed to keep the surprise. My boys were so worried they would give something away but they did great! I made my mom a special card too, of course. She love purple and she is the one who gave me my sewing machine so naturally I created this.
I had a tough time with the light getting a good picture before we had to leave but I think you can see the idea. It seems prettier in person though. The background splatter is from Gorgeous Grunge and is stamped in Gold Encore Ink. Then I inked the butterfly from Butterfly Basics in Blackberry Bliss. I hand cut this one out and then added on a gold metal button tied with a Vanilla Baker’s Twine that came in a Christmas card kit (these kits just keep giving). I added some Venetian Crochet Trim and Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon underneath the butterfly. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
Quick post today but I thought I’d share a picture from our weekend. This was taken at my mom’s church and I thought it was really nice.
So glad you stopped in today. I’ll be back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. Hope your day is great!
