My Mom's Mother's Day Card

I just realized that I never posted the card that I made my mom for Mother's Day.  I used one of my favorite stamp sets from the Summer Mini on her card...Flower Fest (p. 20).  I love the texture that these flowers have.  They are pretty colored in and not colored in as shown with this card.

It's hard to tell in the picture, but the butterfly was heat embossed with the new Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi emboss powders from the Summer Mini (p. 23).  The heat embossing really makes the butterfly pop.  I did have to cut the butterfly body out by hand, but the butterfly wings were punched out with the Butterfly Punch (p. 202).  After I embossed it, I colored it in with Daffodil ink using a Sponge Dauber (p. 195).

The border on the bottom of the Melon Mambo piece was made with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (p. 6 in the Summer Mini).  I only let half of the flowers show, and then added the rhinestones from the Basic Rhinestone Jewels Pack (p. 188) to each one.  I'll be using this punch to make borders a lot!
