Butterfly Mom Card!

Hello there!  Thought I would pop by with another Mother's Day card to share!  Yes a second card share from me in a week!  My card class has brought back the love of paper crafting for me!  I think the break did me good, with being so busy with wreaths if I take a break from creating wreaths to make a card I know exactly what I want to make and I create so much faster!  While I did take a break from paper crafting, I didn't take a break from shopping I have a lot of unopened stuff today I am sharing a card  this stamp set by Clearly Besotted Elegant Butterflies.  This is my first set by them, I like it, it's a bigger set for not that much extra.  While you all know how much I love flowers, my first love is butterflies.  I find stamping backgrounds with stamps to be relaxing, to save time I "assigned" each butterfly a clear block and a color so no cleaning and messing up colors:

I used Hero Arts inks:  Mint, Pale Tomato, Peach, and wet cement.  I added the Mom die cut by Simon Says Stamp (doubled the cardstock than die cut kinda hard to get this intricate die cut out, maybe I wish it was thicker font) and anchored it with a velum strip.  A pretty simple card but pretty.  

Well it's a rainy gloomy day here!  Chad drove Ariel to school this morning and than realized that she forgot her backpack!  So he came back and is driving it to her, did I mention it's a 20 minute drive one way?  :<  I am off to work on some wreaths!  My shop is even busier this week!  :>
