She loves purple and blue, so I pulled out some older paper that I found with those colors and punched a bunch of Martha Stewart butterflies. I stitched them on, just because after adhering them they looked a little bare and boring to me. I also added a bit of paint with an old toothbrush, you just load up the brush, bend the bristles back with your thumb and let the paint fly.
I made a little tag with the Tiny Tags die and stamp set by Papertrey Ink, and stamped "mom" from the set as well. I know the big flutter of butterflies is not a new concept, but I love how it looks on a card and it was so easy! The other day, I learned a new word from my brilliant friend Jill (scrappy brilliant and just plain brilliant! check out her blog!)....she called me a scrappy lepidopterist. I wasn't sure if she was swearing at me, or giving me a compliment. LOL! I love butterflies, don't think I'll ever get sick of them. :) Have a sweet day,
