Happy Mother's Day

It's time for another challenge at AAA Cards, and our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers with a $20 gift certificate to their shop.

Mother's day a time of to celebrate our Mom's but it can be hard day for so many, whether if your like me and have lost your mom or because you desperately want to be a mom but that just hasn't happened yet or you have lost a child, whatever the reason that today is a hard day, you are in my thoughts and prayers. 
In the past I usually send out Mother's Day cards to those like me whose mom is no longer with them but this past couple of months have been so busy that I only had time to make cards for my family and I apologize to my friends for not getting a word of encouragement in your mailbox.

To make my card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel cut down with a stitched die. Using the MISTI stamping tool, I stamped the butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies by My Favorite Things in Peony Fresh Ink and then embossed the second layer in gold.  The greeting is from the Hello Sentiments set by Joy Clair.
