Good morning!  Today is Wednesday, so we are going to Color Down the Lines!  Today’s challenge was to make a Mother’s Day card using no flowers… Well, my intentions were good!  I immediately thought – butterflies!  I pulled out one of my old favorite stamp sets, Papillon Potpourri, and thought I would use it before it retires!  I also remembered that the most recent Paper Pumpkin kit had a good sentiment that could be adapted for many different occasions – to include Mother’s Day!

Okay, so here is where I failed… Sure I was just stamping butterflies… but when I finished my card I realized that two of the butterflies actually contain flowers…  sorry gang!  (also, when I finished the card I dragged my inky thumb across the front by accident – what a mess I am!!
Here is what I have for you:
eek!  and here is the close up of the “flowers”…

I have used several things that are retiring here, some available while supplies last (elegant butterfly punch), and some will be available (guaranteed) until May 22…  and pne of these stamp sets is ONLY available through Paper Pumpkin…  This month’s kit was amazing – and I happen to have a full spare kit available and can get it to you!!  The kit is $20, (plus shipping if you don’t live in this area), and included everything you need to make a bunch of fun cards – here’s the video that shows how they go together!

Here is what I used (besides the Paper Pumpkin stamp set)
Now be sure to hop over to Liz and see what she has for you!
