Mother's Day Butterfly Card

Hello there everyone!  I am so excited that it's time for another challenge at Krafty Girls!  Yahoo!  The challenge this week is to create something for Mother's Day.  Believe it or not, I did not use the Cricut on this project!!!!!!  I know, I know...  It's shocking!  I like making my own patterned paper by stamping the image, embossing it, and then rubbing ink over the entire paper...  It's really fun, and I like the effect that it gives!  :) 

5" square card
Joy's Life Stamps- Everyday Occasions "happy", Holiday Occasions "Mother's Day"
Martha Stewart Butterfly Stamps
A la Mode- sparkle embossing powder
ColorBox Ink Pad- moss green
Black beading wire (for the antennas)
Prismacolor Pencils

That's it!  This card was super simple to make, and I hope you like it!  Be sure to stop by Krafty Girls and link up your beautiful Mother's Day projects!  :)
