Happy Mother's Day

This week has been crazy! I've been rehearsing the music and preparing for my trip to New York tomorrow, and my daughter got sick on Wednesday. Sick with a 104.1 degree fever! So we are unsure if she will be able to come (my husband would stay home with her). Hopefully this yucky virus will be gone by tomorrow morning so we can all go as planned.



Anyway, that has not left me with much time for crafting! I did manage to make a quick card. I was inspired by a beautiful card that I saw that used a large butterfly die to cut out the front, and then a background was stamped behind it. I can't remember where I saw this or who made it, if anyone knows what I'm talking about, leave me a comment and I'll post the link.

Hope you have a great weekend!
Melissa

Love these colors and what a beautiful card. :) I've tried this myself (using the negative space)... you make it look wonderful!

Very pretty! Great job!

I think it may be one of Maile's cards that you are looking for.

Oh wow, what a stunning card! I love the idea of using a die-cut to make a "window" to the design behind. SO fun!

Cute, I did the same type of thing recently. Using the negative image as a window. Different but fun. Love the colors you used. Beautifully done.

What music? Why are you going to NY? Have I missed some important announcement? FILL ME IN!
I hope your little one is better!

I hope your daughter feels better soon. I'm sure she wants to see Mom perform and would hate to miss it. Can't wait to hear how the performance goes. Your card is fantastic! I think Maile did one using this idea and yours is so pretty. Love the colors you chose,too. Have a safe trip and break a leg!

Hope your littlest feels better and that you can all go to NY. Break a leg!!!
