A Mother's Love

Good afternoon crafters

That was a hard morning, it's the first 4am start I have done since last March.  Had to drag my son into work with me as well to help out for a couple of hours before college.

Today's card is one that I finished off last night, I didn't get chance to post it because of having to go to bed early.

I have started with a square piece of patterned digital paper and layered this onto green Centura Pearl paper.  Using the Spellbinders Reflective Moment die, I have cut two of the largest from the same green Centura Pearl paper, onto these I have layered two different patterned digital papers.

The digital stamp is called Butterfly Princess from Saturated Canary.  I have coloured her using ProMarkers, cut her out and layered her onto one of the die cuts.  I have then printed from my computer, the sentiment "A Mother's love is like sunshine ... that warms you all over" and layered this onto the other die cut.

The flowers have been made by stamping the Heartfelt Creations Sun-Kissed Fleur with Perfect Medium and heat embossing using Cosmic Shimmer Golden Fish Lustre Embossing Powder.  These have been cut out using the match Spellbinders die and layered to form three flowers.  I have then cut from green Centura Pearl paper, three centres for the flowers, two using the Spellbinders D-Lites Blooms Three and the third one using a Tattered Lace die.  To add a bit of sparkle, the flowers have been sprayed with Crafter's Companion Gold Glitter Spray.

To finish the card, I have added a piece of green ribbon across the bottom of the card.
