Chasing butterfly and dreams

Finally managed to get some time to be creative. Its busy, busy which always stops the creative flow. I am busy all weekend so need to get some creations made to save my sanity. Its my mothers birthday very soon and I have created this specially for her as she loves all things butterfly and this is all butterfly.
Over on just-magnolia they would like to see a card that is not square shaped. I choose to make a butterfly shaped card to fit with my theme.
The paper on the front is basic grey. Tilda and butterlies are from the spring set. I made the sentiment on my computer and cut it out in the shape of a butterfly. The paper on the inside I created using my computer so that it matched. I glued some gems to add some bling.
Card recipe
Stamps: magnolia
Papers: Basic grey
Flowers: Prima

Images coloured with copic pens.
Thanks for stopping by I hope you like it.
I love reading your comments and I can visit your blog.

What a great card! And to be honest, I almost made the same shape (didnt saw yours though) and decided to put my Magnolia (which is the same as yours) in a scallop card.
