Butterflies, Blessings, and Mom

     This card showcases one of the freebie images from The East Wind's Facebook page and their challenge theme is "Mother's Day w/ Flowers."  Isn't she darling in her traditional Korean dress?  I chose to do this one in my favorite purples and lavenders.


     She's colored with ProMarkers and chalks, and then, instead of die cutting the image, I used a left over 'outside' from another die cut (Spellbinders") to frame the image.  The butterfly embellie is actually a decorative corner die cut (Cheery Lynn) to which I added pearls on a purple CS strip for the body and turned it into a butterfly.

     The large flower is from Recollections and the three small flowers are punched, glittered, beaded, and laid out on top of leaf die cuts (also Cheery Lynn.)
