Mother's day!

I'm starting to put together my Mother's Day project for my mom.  That I cannot post just yet but I will post the card I made for her!  I thought I'd combine a couple of challenges.  First it's sketch week over at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.  I just love playing with Bugaboo stamps!  Second over at Krafty Girls is Challenge #6 Dear Mother.  Here is the sketch:
and here is what I created:
I really like how it turned out!  It's not your typical Mother's Day color scheme but I just love love this paper! and the butterfly went perfectly!  The paper is Echo Park and the butterfly is from Bugaboo Stamps that I colored it with my copics (some borrowed actually from mom!).  I used my very old Creative Memories Oval cutting system to cut the ovals.  And actually I believe the jagged border is also from CM from A LONG time ago!  I inked it with Technique Tuesday ink to better match the color (it was ivory to start).  I finished it off with some glitter rub ons from Lil' Davis Designs and a little doodling!  Happy early Mother's Day mom!  Can't wait to post the real present!
