Mother's Day Butterflies


Hi there!  I'm popping in today with a set of Mother's Day cards.  They were relatively quick and simple to put together so I made a few in each colour since I'm getting lots of requests for Mother's Day.  The coloured Lil' Inker stitched mat is the same colour as the dark ink on each of the Altenew butterflies (except for the yellow) and the sentiment is from Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  I'm going to play along with a few challenges with these cards:

Addicted to Stamps and More - Photo inspiration
The Paper Players - CAS butterflies 
Just Add Ink - Just Add M

Have a lovely day!
