Butterflies for Mom

I really like the butterflies thinlits dies from Stampin" Up!. They are so delicate and so pretty for Mother's Day cards.
I masked off and used a Tim Holtz stencil called burlap to do the backgrounds. The sentiments are from SU. After die cutting the yellow butterfly, I spattered it with some Melon Mambo ink. The pink one is from a sublte pink/yellow/blue scrap paper. The top one has SU candy dots. The bottom one has clear sequins that take on whatever background color. That is a nice feature as you always have the correct color sequins.
