Mothers Day Butterflies

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are we all?

Today I have for you another mothers day card. 

This one is one I made for my mum. 

I went with a nice blue and white colour combination and love how the colours have worked together, as I didn't have the correct colour blue that I was wanting in my craft stash I used an ink pad, some water and cut and dry foam, and created my own colour that I wanted. 

The card is a white 8x8 card base and matted with square blue and white embossed card, I then used my grand nestabilities to cut the shape mats out, I used the largest two from the set. 

The sentiment "Mam with love on Mother's Day" was printed from the computer and cut out using nestabilities. 

The flowers and leaves were cut from the cameo machine and the butterflies from the cricut machine. 

To finish the card I added gems to the butterflies and to the center of the flowers.
