Mother's Day Cards

This card is for my mum for Mother's Day and I have also decorated an envelope to match.
I created the background using a flower stamp, black Stazon and then watercolour crayons.
I stamped and embossed the butterfly with black onto black card and then I used my Pearl Ex palette to colour the butterfly with.
The background is layered on to black, gold,red and then onto a black card.
The butterfly has been stuck to the card using silicon glue so I have more at the front and less at the back. The butterfly looks like it is hovering over the flowers.

I also made and envelope to match the card.

The basket card has been designed as a kit for 30 pre-school children to make.

Take a look on CMUtd challenge group

Hope you enjoy lookig at the cards today!
