Butterfly amongst the flowers

This card started off with me wanting to use a Hero Arts flowers set and playing with metallic rubons (haven't used them in a while). The colouring has a lovely sheen which doesn't show up in the scan. Crafty Bitz butterfly; Fiskars border punch; Franchville purple paper; green paper and gold cord from my stash. I used this as a birthday card for a fried who has beautiful, butterfly-attracting garden.

Happy Mother's Day to my mum

Here's the card I made for my mum for Mother's Day. The tiles, swirls and small text are Inkadinkadoo stamps and the 'Happy' is from Paper Xtra; SU paper; brad and ribbon from my stash. I stamped the sentiment in pale pink and clear embossed it it didn't stand out enough so I tried running a white gel pen over the embossing and then did a second embossed layer - I'm quite happy with how it turned out.
