Mother's Day Card

Hey Y'all!

So, when I sat down to write this post...I realized...I should have posted these BEFORE Mother's Day. BUT, oh well!!  I'll be sharing 3 with you that I created this year.  I decided to try and make an easel card.  I have to say.  REALLY simple and there are some great tutorials on YouTube if you'd like to try it.  Just search for Easel Card Tutorial.  If anyone would like...I can make a short one.  I didn't do exact measuring this time of course!

So here's my first card.

I used Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime papers.  I had these scraps left over from the fairy mini I made.  Then I used some amazing trim, but I'm not sure where I got it.  :(  I also used some rose buds and mini roses from I Am Roses.  I used brown inkadinkadoo pigment ink for distressing and some pop dots for dimension.  The butterflies are an older Martha Stewart punch and I put diamond stickles on the top.  I also used some ivory colored card stock on the inside for space to write the message in the card. 

Thanks for taking a look!!
