Mother's Day card

We had the most beautiful sunny day today, felt like Spring was here ... don't get too excited though, normal service is resumed tomorrow with lashing rain most of the day LOL

I was asked to make a Mother's Day card for a 4 month old boy to give to his Mum.  Awwww.  Extra Brownie points for Daddy I think!

My card uses an old Penny Black stamp - coloured with watercolour pencils.  Silver peel off letters from stash.  Marianne Designs butterfly die.  Martha Stewart butterfly punch - I don't use this so much now as my punch has cracked and its a killer on the hands to try and get butterflies out of it :(

Free choice of sketch at Sweet Sunday #259 - I used sketch #223
