Butterfly Bear

This is the Mother's Day card I made for my Mum to give to her Mother...and it features a cute Lili of the Valley stamp called 'James Butterflies'. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils to match the papers from the 'Indie Chic - Nutmeg' pad by My Mind's Eye. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The flowers are a mixture of Papermania and Prima, the brad is by BasicGrey and the sentiment is from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts.
