Mother's Day

I made this card for the Mother's Day challenge on Cheery Lynn and the pastel challenge on Stampin Sisters in Christ.  The background is a Cheery Lynn poinsettia plate and I used the Faux Patina technique from the resources on Split Coast stampers.  The die cuts are all Cheery Lynn, the beautiful circle is Doily stacker circle 1,2, 3
I used a straight circle inside of it to stamp the saying from Our Daily Bread Designs Mother's set.  The pretty fanciful flourish was put down first, with olive branches and the leaf from Judy's bloom.   These beautiful flowers were made with miniature roses, medium roses and large rose dies.  The butterfly is from small exotic butterfly set and I added some silver pen around the edges and pearls to finish everything.
