Basic Grey #25!

I don't know how I'm typing this, my arms feel like they're made of lead after yesterdays exercise! Here's my card for this weeks Basic Grey challenge which this week is a sketch. I've decided to make another Mothers Day card, no I don't have 2 mums but I know from experience that my brother will text me and ask me to make her a card about 15mins before he needs it!! I've used these gorgeous Bittersweet papers from Basic Grey and this Butterfly stamp which I got at the Make It show, I've 'popped' up the wings more than the body - not sure if you can tell! Thanks for looking!


Supplies-
Stamp - Butterfly' by Little Claire Designs coloured with Whispers and Stickles
Papers - Core'dinations (embossed with Swiss Dots folder then sanded) and 'Bittersweet' by Basic Grey
Ribbon - Ribbon Mad
Gems - Creative Beadcraft
Corners - Cuttlebug Die
Border - Martha Stewart Doily punch
Sentiment - Doodlebug and Nestabilities
