Using a recipe ......

I'm getting ahead & have started making Mothers Day cards ........
This one is using the recipe that Sue provided over on Crafts by Carolyn forum.
A butterfly, a circle & a gem.

I used my nestibilities, the scalloped circle to cut & emboss the circle
then I stamped in the middle
& mounted it onto the striped paper background.

The gem is the pearl in the middle of the flower. I also used my Martha Stewart punch for the leaves
and mounted the flower & leaves onto the ribbon.

The butterfly is punched out using my Martha Stewart punch & double layered & the top layer stickled with silver Stickles.

and to finish I stamped the Happy Mothers Day sentiment straight onto the card.

very pretty card, I am soo not that organised. I have been after that leaf/branch punch for ages but can't find one anywhere.

I got my branch punch over in the USA yonks ago - it's really useful :-)
