For my mum

I'm here today with my Bellarific Babe card I made for my mum.  I decided to go down the elegant route and made this...


Not my usual style!  But wanted to try the mixed media route and ended up with this simple card.  I used Em's Lantern Flowers that includes the butterfly (and a dragonfly) and for the background I used the Eclectic Mini mesh, bubble wrap and fresh script stamp set with a paler Versafine Smokey Grey ink.

Okay, thanks for visiting.  I gotta rush now to get ready for dinner with the family - ttfn!
