You Bring Out the Beauty in Everything

🌺Happy Mother's Day!🌺
I hope you are not tired of seeing butterflies as I used the same stamp set as yesterday's card. 😉

I love the sentiment in this stamp set.  In our life, there are special people who bring out the beauty in us. Be it a parent, grandparent, sister, brother, son, daughter....or friends, we can always count on people like that. Since today's is Mother's Day, I am dedicating this post to my mom, my late mother-in-law and my two children.

you bring out the beauty in everything

As usual, I started stamping the large butterfly and colored it with Wink of Stella (Clear) and Distress Oxide .The large butterfly was stamped in Cracked Pistachio and then clear-embossed.

Dr. John and I are blessed with two beautiful, responsible and accomplished children.

First of all, your butterfly card is lovely. The coloring is gorgeous and your stamping, as always, beautifully done. That sentiment is perfect on the woodgrain paper.
Secondly, that letter from Stephanie is such a treasure. Bet you're glad you kept, now.
