I decided that I would make a flowery card for mam on one side of the card blank and a card from Lou and Euan, using "their" images on the other side. Mam can choose which side to show, or show both. This way, I get to make the flowery, colourful card I know she loves, but also include a meaningful character, or two:0)
For the flowery card, I used a little bit of the beautiful Henbury Lane paper. I've pleated some white ribbon and layered some silver mesh (both from Hobbycraft) over the pleats for a bit of texture. The white circle has been embossed using my Crafts Too folder. The flower has been made up from my Memory Box Hibiscus die, a punched flower and pearl. The leaves are from the Spellbinders Foliage set. The beautiful butterfly are my new Clearly Besotted Butterfly Wishes Additions and die - fantastic service and quality - I am now obsessed with this company!!!!! I've been surprised that the butterflies stamp so well using my Distress Ink pads (this one is Tumbled Glass)....I've never had particularly sharp images when I've tried before.
