Mother's Day Card

Bitten by the Bug 2 has a challenge this week for Mothers Day 2010. We are to use any of the "Mother" sayings on that cart. or any of the other cartridges.
I don't have the Mothers Day cart., but I used the "Mom" from the Beyond Birthdays cart.

I had to make it taller and narrower to fit where I wanted it, so I used my Gypsy to adjust it. It was 1.3" tall and 2.3 " wide. I shadowed it with white and then put Stickles on it.

I made a gate fold card. I cut two pieces of printed paper 1 7/8 x 5 1/4" and glued them to the front. I cut a piece of blue cardstock at 3.5 x 2.5" and a piece of pink cardstock at 3.25 x 2.25". I embossed the pink paper with the Birds and Swirls embossing folder. I glue them together and then put a ribbon (from local craft store) around it and I glued them to the left side of the card. I took 5 little white flowers and inked three of them with pink Color Box chalk. I put them on the right side with a brad to hold my card closed.

I punched out two butterflies from a MS punch and glued the centers together. I glued it onto a butterfly on the paper. I used Stickles on the wings.
I added a rhinestone flower to the center of one of the flowers on the bottom right.
The sentiment on the inside was printed on my computer.
