Butterflies and other Transformations

This post is about transformations because my mom and I have been busy sorting through a basement full of a life time of stuff.  It has brought back many memories for both of us and added a few new family stories for the archives.  The process of letting go is very hard when things bring back a strong memory. But the momentum has been created - both for Mom to continue after I leave and for me to start when I get home.  (Hope my husband does not read this blog, he might actually hold me to my plan to attack our basement!) Given the major transformation in my mom's house a butterfly card seemed appropriate.

While I am enjoying my time with my parents, I sure do miss having access to my stamping room. I did bring a few supplies with me so I could stamp with my sister and her friends. It was hard to choose which supplies to bring but I knew my mom would appreciate a card with butterflies.  This is one of the cards we did. We did the green one tonight, the pink card was just a sample. 

The card uses the Butterfly Punch. There are 2 layers to the butterflies...one is the solid color cardstock and the top layer is Vellum Paper.  Isn't it pretty with the image on the vellum? I created the pattern by stamping White Pigment Ink with the Bella Toile background stamp.  warning:  it takes forever to dry. I did this yesterday so it would be dry for today's event.
