Flowers for Mom

May is not just Mother's Day, it is also my Mom's birthday month.  So I am sending her more flowers for her birthday!  Created this card using the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

So usually I am lucky to make one card a week.  Between work and the family, it just doesn't leave much play time.  Especially now that spring is here and the weather is warmer.  I am feeling extremely lucky to post a second card this week.  I used my Sizzix Butterflies #3 stamps and die set for the flowers and butterfly.  The flowers are colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  The butterfly is colored with gelatos (except the yellow, which is distressed marker) Die cut a Sizzix scalloped oval and inked it up lightly with SU Crumb Cake.  My diagonal strip is blue flowered washi tape and green ribbon.  Added a little "for you" tag tied on with black and white bakers twine and a few gems in the corner.  
Thanks for stopping by! God bless!!
