I'm stuck on butterflies this week! Here are a couple more Mother's Day cards for Operation Write Home. The first one is based on a challenge sketch seen on their website. I didn't like the way it turned out so I changed the layout.
The sketch indicated to use three strips of paper, 1/2" wide beside the center rectangle. I wound up with the sentiment being on a piece that wasn't tall enough for the three bands to look appropriate beside it. If the sentiment had been on a long narrow rectangle, it would have been okay.
I had multiple card bases prepared so I cut out some shapes using Elegant Edges and printed my sentiment on those. The shadow was made using Design Studio.
I used Martha Stewart and Stampin' Up punches for the butterflies and added some accents with inks and Pearl Pens.
Inside sentiment was printed using card making software.
