Chasing Dreams and Catching Butterflies

They're all the same, aren't they?  Your dreams are butterflies, some elusive, some landing right in your hand.  My card today uses Hambo Stamps digi image "Catching Butterflies", which I received FREE just for playing in last week's challenge!  That's right, all dancers in the Hambo Hoedown receive a free digi for the next challenge, plus a chance to win more!  And Hambo is hosting a BLOG HOP next weekend, so hop on over for a free digi to start you tapping your toes with creativity!
Meanwhile, back at the blog, I printed "Catching Butterflies" twice, since my 4 yo granddaughter is visiting and wants to make cards for all the moms in her family.  The first card is mine using patterned paper I snagged at a rummage sale.  I used my new Creative Memories punch system to "prettify" my sentiment, which I printed on my computer.
I colored the image with my trusty Copics, fussy cut him out and adhered him with pop dots for dimension.  The image comes with a butterfly, but I had these cute shimmery butterflies already planned for him to chase.
The challenge calls for FLOWERS, and you can see I piled them on with tiny pearls.
I want to wish all women a Happy Mother's Day, whether you have children, nieces, nephews, pets--doesn't matter, you nurture others, which means you are a mother.  So enjoy the day, and keep crafting!!
p.s. (Here is my granddaughter's creation for your viewing pleasure).
