OCC Challenge - Wonderful Mother

Hello & thanks for stopping by! My sample today is for this weeks challenge over at Our Creative Corner. Our April host, Dana Grothaus, has challenged the OCC to incorporate a bow on your card or project. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.

For my sample, I started with some old paper by Basic Grey and then just built up my card from there. The paper says it all, it is so pretty, I almost did not add the sentiment to it! Since the paper had a rustic background, I added to the edges by using my scissors and cutter kit by SU. To finish it off, I added the pearls, swirls and the beautiful butterfly. As you can see by my layout, this is not a card I typically design - I like to challenge myself from time to time.

Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to stop by the OCC to see the beautiful card samples by the Design Team
