Anywho, today's card was made for my mom. I need to get it in the mail today. And thanks to Pals Paper Arts Inspiration Challenge I was able to crank out a card. I kinda took it as a color challenge even though it could have been anything, from the pictures to colors... it was whatever inspired you (well me or you if ya wanna partake in the fun). I probably should have been inspired by the pictures because color challenges are a little out of my comfort zone.
Ok really, enough rambling from me for today (lol).
Here is the Inspiration:
And here is my card:
So as I said I went for a color challenge and used several colors from SU. Oh goodness the only color name I can remember is So Saffron and the card base that is Kraft. Not sure which red, green or blue those are. I used a woodgrain stamp on the white squares and clear embossed them. The butterflies are from SU, Flight of the Butterfly set and I used the butterfly punch, also from SU. I inked 3 of them with Black Stazon and the red one I inked with Ruby Red classic ink from SU. The solid black butterfly I used heat and stick powder to add some glitter. I paper pieced the square in the middle that holds the Happy Mother's Day sentiment.
And there you have it. You know after thinking about I think this is the first card I have made that I didn't use any PP. Kinda strange for me. LOL!
