My mother loves the color purple/lavender and she loves butterflies! She has butterfly jewelry, butterfly home decor items, and probably some clothing with a butterfly stitched on it! I used the From the Heart Digital Art Stamp called Spring Baskets to make her Easter card. I knew immediately that the big bow around the basket would be purple, along with other elements of the card! I used Copic & Spectrum Noir markers to color the image, and the papers are all from my stash. Although you probably can't tell much by the picture, I embossed the white card stock with Cuttlebug's Decorative Tile set. The purple die cut on which the image sits is Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis Squares, the sentiment is from My Creative Time's Teeny Tiny Tags set. The butterflies on the corners were made using a Martha Stewart punch, and I used a glitter pen on their wings after I colored them. Of course my camera took a really crummy picture of this card....it is much prettier in person! Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
