Enjoy this wonderful Mother's Day! I embellished a little card kit using the same theme from the Strength & Hope jars in the previous post. I inked the card edges with Blushing Bride. After stamping the Hope sentiment in Basic Gray I used a sponge dauber to dab some Blushing Bride highlights over the H. The butterflies are made using the baby wipe technique. I placed several drops of Marina Mist, Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze reinkers on a baby wipe and stamped the butterfly. The butterfly is accented with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter and a pearl embellishment.
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving
