May is Mother's Day at the Cuttlebug Blog!

The theme is still Mother's Day!! This is my first project for May for the Cuttlebug Blog! We do a challenge for the first of each month then we do 2 projects for the same theme! So in a couple weeks I will have my 2nd project up!

Don't forget to join us every month over at
There is always a great goodie package given away to one lucky person!
In just a few days, we will be announcing the winner of the EXPRESSIONS over there!

For this card I used and did the following:
Flocked paper (my friend Mary bought me this a long time ago and I am still using it!! Thanks Mary)
White velvet lace ribbon (it stretches..LOL..I need to fix the top I see when looking at my card)
White ink rubbed over the top of the embossed black paper (which was cut with the cricut)
Swiss Dots embossing folder
Silver Leafing pen around the edges of the embossed paper

Now the fun part:
The butterflies!!
I stamped them on a transperancy then on the one that has purple I used stickles (wanted to see what they would like with using stickles)
then the other butterfly I used the glitter glue and glitter I bought at the stamping show...I actually bought the glue 2 years ago at the first stamp show I went to and then couldn't remember what to use and how to do it (which it is soooo simple LOL) so this year when we went back I watched and learned again so now I did it! LOL)

While I think they both work..I think the glitter and glue covered my image much better!

Feel free to leave comments! I love reading them!
