Hello Crafty friends, I wanted to share a Card with you all that I made my Mom for her Birthday.
But before I do I would like to tell you the about where I got the Inspiration for the Card.
As some of you all know I lost my brother a few months ago. It Is still very hard for me to deal with.
After he passed away my siblings and I only had ten days to get everything out of his apartment. It was a big job,but some how we got It done.
He had a lot of antiques, so we had an Antique dealer come In. He was a good friend of my brothers. He bought a truck load of stuff. Was very thankful he bought so much. Because we didn't have long to get everything out.
But there was still several things that we thought might make more money If we sold them rather than having the dealer buy them. Any money that we were making was going to use for funeral expenses, bills and for a tombstone.
So we packed it all up in totes and a lot of it my sister and I brought to my house. While we were starting to take totes out of her car, a Black and purple Butterfly kept going from the trunk, to inside the car and to my porch sitting on the totes. It kept doing it over and over. We felt as though It was our brother letting us know he was o.k.
So later that night I was talking to my Mom on the phone and was telling her about the butterfly. She loved hearing the story.
So the next day she called me and told me that she had went out side and a Black and Purple Butterfly wouldn't leave her alone. So we think It was him visiting her to.
So I wanted my Mom's Birthday Card to remind her of that special day and I also wanted it to be more than just a card. So I decided to make an Easel Card.
I added a piece of light purple vellum so that she can see the butterfly even in the dark.
A lot of Love went Into making this card for my Mom. I wanted It to be extra special for her. I even made the card in my brothers favorite colors Orange and Purple.
