Last week I cut these velum butterflies (using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge) to use on a Mother's Day Card for Mojo Monday. Then I decided black butterflies with velum overlays would be more striking on that card, and set the velum butterflies aside.
Those leftover butterflies, now embossed, became delicate additions to this card. I added a few skittles from Double Click; used a gorgeous die cut from Our Daily Bread Designs; and a sentiment from Newton's Nook.
Speaking of leftovers, our family's annual Mother's Day luncheon was yesterday. Guess I overdid it. The fact that 4 cancelled at the last minute didn't help. My frig is so packed with leftovers! I'll be distributing some to my neighbor, although Paul was hoping I'd have a three layer chocolate cake to share.
And then I had one uninvited guest of the wrong gender...
We don't usually include canines. And I almost freaked when he jumped up on my new white sofa!
Back to the card...
