Less is More - Masking

Hi everyone :)
Another week gone and it's the Less is More challenge again!
This week Chrissie and Mandi are asking us to try masking.....
Oh No!
I did it last week for the script challenge and found it hard (usually the ink ends up where it shouldn't...)
But I gave it a go yesterday :)
 I stamped the sentiment first and then the butterfly. Then made a mask (with a post it note) for the tail of the 'g' and the butterfly before stamping over them both with the frame stamp.  I used SU inks and Unity stamps and used my stamp-a-majig for placement - I would be lost without this useful tool!

I matted the stamped card on melon mambo card and popped it up on thin foam pads.
The blue ribbon is May Arts and the tiny button is by Fancy pants.

I have to admit......I did enjoy making this card!
The ink actually went where it was meant to and I didn't trail my card through any ink pads :)

If you're celebrating Mother's Day today, I hope you're having a lovely day.
Three little faces appeared at my bedside this morning, holding a tray and looking a bit anxious.
I had breakfast in bed (toast & marmalade!) lovingly made and it tasted delicious :)
Best present ever!

Thanks for visiting today.

P.S. I got another surprise this morning - I was chosen for the spotlight at Sweet Stampin' for my Mother's Day card for Mum - delighted :)

Hi Sarah - I don't think there is any kind of card you can't make perfectly! I love this CAS card with the flash of pink behind the label and the great masking. Your ribbon's a lovely touch too. I'm glad you were spoiled this morning by your lovely ones and congratulations on your win at Sweet Stampin'! Vicky x
