Happy Mother's Day

Hope all the mother's out there had a wonderful day today!  We started out with rain & a slight chill in the air, but by the time we left church this morning the sun was shining bright!  This is the card I made for my mother.  Most of the times I try to make her something with her favorite color, lavender, but as I was flipping through my paper stacks, I saw this print with the butterflies & sparkle on it from the DCWV Mariposa Matstack.  I thought it was pretty, and she loves butterflies, so it ended up being mostly brown & blue, which is one of my favorite color combos!  I used two Spellbinder die cuts to frame the sentiment, & hand pierced around the inside of the sentiment layer. The sentiment is a stamp called "With Love" made by Printworks.  I've had it forever and maybe only used it one other time, but I liked the idea of using it instead of the typical Happy Mother's Day!  I used a Martha Stewart punch to cut out the butterflies, added pearls to their bodies, and spritzed them and the flowers with some glitter spray  to match the glitter on the paper. My mother loved it, and asked me..."did you make this one yourself....how in the world did you make all this?" She obviously hasn't seen the obscene amount of product I have in my craft room or she wouldn't ask that question!!  I'm sure all of you cardmakers & scrapbookers out there can relate!!  Anyway, I'm glad she liked it.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
