Shimmery Butterfly Card

For this card I started off with a white piece of cardstock cut at 4 inches by 5 and 1/4 inches.  I stamped various butterflies from the Stampendous set called butterflies using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  After I stamped all the butterflies I colored them in with Copics.

I attached the white piece to a black base fo 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2 inches.  At this point I sprayed both of these layers very liberally with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.  As usual these details are difficult to photograph but the sparkle in person is pretty awesome.  I especially love it on the black section.

I outlined around the white layer with some Black Diamond Stickles.

The banner was cut from light grey cardstock using the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners set.

The sentiment was stamped in Stampin' Up's Taken With Teal ink.  I used SP & Company sets Mix N Match Basics, and Mix N Match Holidays.  I went around the banner with a pink marker to make stitching lines.  I wasn't satisfied with the look so I covered those with Diamond Stickles.  The pink showed through the glitter and it actually came out pretty neat.

I'll be sharing 2 more Mother's Day cards very soon so stay tuned if you need ideas for those this year :)
