Parent appreciation day

I found  a website that lists many different national and international celebration days whilst looking for the date of brothers day as I know when sister's day is  and wanted to celebrate my brother too.

I found that as well as being vanilla ice cream appreciation day it is also parent appreciation day today so thought I'd make my parents a card, it worked out even better as they were coming for dinner too.

I decided on a simple design and play at the same time too, I stamped some small butterflies in versamark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I them used spectrum noir aqua pens and water coloured in blue over the whole area.

I then mounted this when dry onto dark blue card.

I added 2 areas to a white base card top and bottom but decided to put a angle on both. I added a handwritten sentiment (though I don't like my hand writing for doing this.)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

HLS watercolour - blue/ anything goes

Addicted to stamps and more - anything goes

Lemon shortbread - anything goes

country view - things with wings
