Mom- Flourishes Motherly Love

Good Morning Friends! It has been an all-nighter for me, no sleep and so wired so I had time to play in my craft room. Since Mother's Day is just around the corner (May 13th) I figured I would make a card to give to my mother and to take part in the Flourishes Motherly love challenge. So here is what I came up with:
My card base is a standard A2 size card at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I used white and black Bazzill cardstock. I created the background by using a floral stamp by Inkadinkado, inked it up with some Versamark ink and it left a pretty watermark. I used Forever Green, forever blue and forever violet Perfect pearls which gave me a beautiful resist and tone for the black background.
Then I stamped this beautiful butterfly stamp from the new Pretty Momma stamp set from Paper Smooches, again using the versamark ink. I then took some teal and hunter green PK glitter Glitz and covered the butterlies. Aren't they just so sparkly?

I stamped my sentiments(both on the outside and inside) with a white ink pad from studio G and with my sakura white gel pen, I made a few faux stitching around the butterlies and around the inside panel. The sentiments are also from the Pretty momma stamp set. I added a butterfly to the inside panel that I stamped on white bazzill cardstock, cut out and popped up with foam adhesive, to continue the theme from the front of the card. The ribbon I used was a small spool that I had in my stash. Well that is it for my card today, I hope it gives you some ideas for Mother's day! Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
