Just Us Girls #342 - Word Week

Mother's Day is tomorrow, and this week word challenge at Just Us Girls gave me the perfect word to use:  Butterfly.
 
I've had this butterfly cover plate in my unused box for a while, so I pulled it out.  It's die cut from white card stock then sponged with mustard seed, spiced marmalade, and ripe persimmon distress inks.  (My mom likes yellow and this is for her!)  This was adhered to the card base, which was stamped with a text stamp in smoky shadow ink.  I added the sentiment on a banner and enamel dots.  The butterflies are covered in Wink of Stella.
 
You can see more from the design team and our May guest on the Just Us Girls blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

I love the blending of colors on that butterfly die cut panel! The subtle text background with the enamel dots works perfectly without distracting from the butterflies. Gorgeous!
