Cheery Lynn Happy Mother's Day!

Hello and Happy Mother's Day!  I'm happy to share a new card this morning.  I envisioned it as a CAS (clean and simple) design with just the Japanese Garden Lace Oval and butterflies.  Sometimes the reality comes out very differently and I thought the card needed more.  I added a piece of designer card stock cut with the A2 Rectangular Scalloped Frames behind the oval and then built the card.  The butterflies were colored with distress ink and a cosmetic wedge sponge.

I glued the Happy Mother's Day to the center, positioned the butterflies and then glued their centers down, letting their wings fly freely.  I used white card stock to make the Sweet Christine flowers in the corner and added in the pink flowers that were made with the Embellishments #3 die.  The leaves are from the Ivy Strip.  They were cut out of the background paper and then colored with some brown distress ink.  I wanted them darker than the background for contrast but I wanted to add some more interest by using patterned card stock.
