Butterflies for Mom


It's hard to believe that Mother's Day is really just around the corner.  It's such a special day - honouring our mothers, and all the mothers out there who give, sacrifice and love so unselfishly and so unconditionally.  Mom's should be celebrated every day of the year, but having one day a year dedicated to celebrating mothers is so special nonetheless. 

I'm hoping to create several cards in the coming weeks for Mother's Day that I would like to bring to work for a little sale before the big day.  I got things kickstarted today with the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge.  This week's challenge is a trend challenge, and the trend is butterflies.

And here's what I came up with:

The butterflies are from Flutter By and the flowers stamped on the scalloped oval in the background are from Reflections. 

Hope you like it!


  1. You will be so prepared when Mother's Day arrives! I love the layout you chose and the neat floral background you stamped out, the perfect perch for the butterflies :)

  2. That is such a sweet Mother's Day card! The butterflies are so cute and the colors are perfect for a Mother's Day card! :) Have a nice weekend, Shannon!

  3. GORGEOUS to the nth degree! Definitely a "Top 3" of all the amazing cards you've shared so far. Colours = perfect! Butterflies = love 'em (I'm so glad I heeded your recommendation about this set!)! Sentiment = heart-melting! Any mom receiving this card will be moved to tears of joy. What can I say but: LOVE it!!
    We arrived home late yesterday; bleary-eyed, but managed to squeak a card into this challenge. Not sure about it, though. Back to work tomorrow - and note-writing time!! Stay tuned, my friend!
    Hope you had a fantastic Sunday!!

  4. OHHHH! This is a beautiful card for your Mom!!! LOVE the colors and the design and that background stamping for the center panel! FAB!!! LOVE that you are working ahead for Mother's Day! I'm sure I will send mine out late (like always!)!!! THANKS so much for joining in the fun and playing along with the Trend Watch: Butterflies Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge last week! Hope you visit the blog and try our sketch this week:) <3

  5. And I'm officially concerned I missed mothers day! If I did how come we didn't eat cake? Don't we normallh do that on mothers day? Anyways, the butterflies are so prettyyyy!!!!!


Thank you for leaving me a comment - I appreciate them so much!
