You are Loved!

That's the sentiment on this card. I started making this card for the challenge at Copic Creations because I wanted to "play" with the technique of paper piecing using a digi. I used a digi image from A Day for Daisies. As it evolved with the butterflies and seniment it is now a card for my daughter just to let her know how much she means to me. I don't think any of us truly realize how much our moms love us 'til we have children of our own. Then we begin to understand all the nights they walked the floors with us when we were teething, when we were sick and as we got older, nursed our broken hearts. Now that she's a mom herself I think she will finally understand what it means when a mom says "I love you".

Here's the close up shots:

I stamped the butterfly (she loves them.. always has!!)  on vellum with Staz-On and then colored it on the reverse side with my Copics.
Here's the rest of the details:
Stamp: A Day for Daisies "My Girl"
Butterfly - Hero Arts "Antique Engravings"
Sorry, I don't know the maker for my sentiment but it's part of a baby set
Dress was printed on K&Company
Ink: Staz-On black
Ribbon: Stash
Misc: Vellum, White Gel Pen
Skin: E02, E00, E000, R20
Hair: YR24, YR21, Y21, Y11

Thanks for taking the time to swing by! Now to go get this in the challenge so I can put it in the mail tomorrow! And mom.. if you ever see this.. I love you!

Such a beautiful card, Dana with immaculate paper piecing! Strangely enough, it's the technique I've used for DDSB this week - must be telepathy!
