For Mom

     It's time for Mother's Day again!  Where is this year going?
     My Mom is a huge flower lover so I HAD to do flowers for her card.  I love the lattice look so I decided to do the card in that style.  All the flowers are made from punched white cardstock.  The largest pink ones and the daisies were colored with Glimmer Mist and then inked with a little Distress ink.  Here's a close up of the flowers.

     I went around the edge of the cream paper with a gold gel pen which made me a nervous wreck.  I just knew I was going to mess it up. 
     The butterfly was made from vellum.  It was stamped, embossed with clear embossing powder, and colored with Copics. (I had to sneak a little coloring in there {grin})  I even went around it's wings with a little of the gold gel pen too.
     I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges.
