I made this card and gave it to one of the ladies who works with Elysha at her Community Access program. This wonderful lady comes in every second Wednesday and volunteers with the young adults helping them make craft items to take home for Mothers day; Fathers Day; Christmas; Easter etc.
She has these amazing ideas and nothing Elysha has brought home has made me feel 'what a waste or how silly'. So so clever and wonderful inspiration. The latest items Elysha has brought home are 'A slice mix in a jar' - all layered so it looks really pretty and another is for 'choice chip biscuits' again in layers. Each is in a glass jar with a pretty lid and the recipe attached.
They and other 'gifts' are lined up on a shelf in her room for Christmas - she is so excited to have a present that she made for each sister, brother, sister-in-law etc.
This wonderful lady who does this volunteers and brings everything preplanned and so enjoyed and if one of the young people is away then they all work together to make one for them to have when they come back.
She does all this though struggling with some major health issues of her own, so I felt she deserved a gift of her own(homemade caramel slice) and a card letting her know we really do appreciate all she does.
This is the card I made, it was actually a very quick put together but started out very slowly with lots of ideas. I actually threw away most of the first card after I rescued what I could -only the butterfly in truth.
So this is take two. The base is one from Papertrey who make a selection of these gold/silver and white backgrounds in chevron, dots, spots, stripes etc. This base is gold and white and the gold has a wonderful sheen.
The stamped sentiment is also Papertrey. I saved up all my wants and did a once in two years buy but at the time the die for this sentiment wasn't available.
The beautiful butterfly is Hero Arts, but as it doesn't have a body I improvised with the body from a butterfly die cut from Memory Box. Finished off with one reddy/pink and one yellow enamel dot.
I would like to add this to:
Mrs A, I finally made a card that fits the challenge.
