Happy Mother's Day

I really like the colors for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge (354) this week. Aren't they beautiful spring colors. I thought they'd be perfect for a mother's day card. Here's the Inspiration photo.

And here's my card.

I started with white CS, masked the edges with tape, sponged on TH distress inks in blue, pink and yellow, added perfect pearls, removed the mask and dry embossed with a Darice butterfly folder. I really like the look of this technique. The sentiment was cut with my Cricut. I sponged more ink and a piece of scrap paper and punched some butterflies to match the background. Some tiny half pearls were added to the butterflies.

My mom loves butterflies, so I know she'll appreciate this card for Mother's Day.
