Hello My Crafty Friends,
I want to share a card with you all that I made for inspiration as a 
DT member of Stamprints.

I love this beautiful image of 'Mother & Child'.
I even added the butterfly charm my granddaughter gave me. 
I know that will mean a lot to her. :)
...For This Card - Step By Step... 
  White cardstock for the card base.
Used a piece of brown cardstock for the center of the card.
Cut a piece of green/orange cardstock with a frame die, used the paper crimper on them. 
Cut the image out with a frame die then went around it with distress ink.
Cut the sentiment out then went around it with distress ink.
Went around the card and brown cardstock with distress ink.
Went over the green and orange die cuts with distress ink.
Taped the green and orange die cuts to the brown cardstock.
Cut two pieces of paper string and glued them across the papers, ends in back. 
Then taped the papers to the card.
Attached foam mounting tape to the back of the image and added it to the card.
I tied a loop with the paper string to make like an extra chain link for the butterfly,
then made the bow and glued it on over the top string.
Used a pencil to make the top corner of the orange paper curl over, glued it onto the image.
Used a pencil to make the sentiment curl in the center and on the sides.
Added tape to the back of each side and attached it to the card.
Then glued the flatback pearls on the sentiment and curled paper.
