On one’s back they are a heavy weight

Sharing a card featuring the sweet Tiny Townie Bess the Butterfly from Stamping Bella.

I made this card for my Mum, who’s off to a first birthday party, so I left off fussy embellies in case anything fell off and became a chocking hazard.  Instead I used the elements from the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch to add interest by using multiple layers.  For the thin rectangle element, I added some butterflies using a stencil and Nuvo Mousse so I could play along at CAS Stencil.  I think Nuvo Mousse is like texture paste or gel, at least I hope it’s considered the same kind of thing!

I did add one embellie, my sentiment chippie from Make it Crafty.  Apart from loving these beyond all other chippies in the world I wanted to also play at Shopping Our Stash.  I heat embossed the chippie in an embossing powder that matched the Nuvo Mousse I used for my butterflies to tie the whole card together.

It’s a bit of a pink explosion but I think still a sweet card for a little girl and Mum is more than happy with it, and it’s always good to keep your Mum happy!
