Butterfly Bling

Hello friends.  I hope you all had as great of a Mother's Day as I did.  Mine was filled with tons of love and some wonderful surprises.

I love the verse stamp I used on this card.  I think it is so honoring to a mother.
 I have been seeing some beautiful, glittery butterflies online lately, but don't own a large butterfly die or punch in the right size and shape, so I needed to improvise.  I found some butterfly templates at this link and used one for the basic butterfly shape.  I wanted a body for my butterfly, so I made that part up myself.  With some cardstock, glue, glitter, and flat back pearls I had my glittery butterfly. :)

Hi Shelly, What a lovely card you've made and your butterfly is very impressive. It proves all the fancy bells and whistles aren't necessary to make pretty things. Thanks so much for linking this Mother's Day card to Scripture Thursday. ~ Abby
