Butterfly Mother's Day Card

This is the result when I was asked to make a Mother's Day card for a mom of six that likes butterflies.  Her husband knows I make cards and contacted my husband to ask if I would make one for her.  I was happy to say yes.  I really enjoy helping a husband surprise his wife.  :)

The background butterflies and the large butterfly are accented with stickles.  The sentiments on the front were computer generated.  The husband didn't author the poem but from reading his FB posts about and to his wife, he could have.  I found the poem on the internet - I'm not sure of the author so I can't give proper credit.  :(

The interior sentiment is from a Sweet 'n Sassy digi stamp set.  A few more butterflies complete the interior decorating.

For this special card, I decided the envelope needed a little decoration.  More stickles accent these butterflies too.

Patterned Paper:  The Paper Studio
Stamps:  Studio G (large butterfly wood mounted stamp), Clear Dollar Stamps (Blooming with Blessings clear stamp set), Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Mother's Day Sentiments digi set)

This card is fabulous! It is aesthetically stunning, but I love how you made it so very personal for your friend's wife. I thought it was neat that you found a poem that represented their relationship so well. I also liked all the places you were able to incorporate butterflies- including the envelope! This is a very special card which I'm sure meant a lot to the recipient. Thanks for sharing it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
