I decided to squeeze in one more Mother's Day card and give it to my neighbor/friend who lost her son (my son's BFF) last year, as I know that it's days like this when she really misses him. RIP Nicky!
The colors I used today are inspired by the colorQ Challenge this week. Whenever I see a color-challenge, I try to make it a point and use cardstock mats in all the colors. This time, I decided to instead use the colors for my embellies, like those butterflies.
The butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart, and I used SU! So Saffron and Groovy Guava cardstock. I chalked around the edges with my Dew Drop in Aloe Vera and secured them with the black pearls.
My center cutout is from the DCWV Preppy Princess Series. I cut it out and inked up this sentiment from the Verve "Because of You" set.
Thank for stopping by today, I hope you have a great weekend
and a Happy Mother's Day!
