Happy Mothers Day ~ Happy Birthday

There is a new challenge up at
Double D and the theme is 
Mothers Day or Happy Birthday
and using the inspiration tile below!

I chose to make a Mother's Day card for my own Mom
as I am very fortunate to have her still in my life
as she will be celebrating her 89th birthday on May 6th
and as many of you might have read on previous posts
she has Stage 4 breast cancer which we are all struggling through.

I  love square cards now and then and decided to make a 5" one for this card.
I used a new Cheery Lynn Designs die Lords & Commons Square Doily (new to me)
for my background.

which I colored with my Copics, then hand cut out.
I tucked a few Sue Wilson Maiden Ferns behind.

I used an old SU Sizzix Butterfly embosslits Beautiful Wings die
to cut a few various size butterflies.
I love this die as it not only cuts 5 very different butterflies,
it embosses each as well!

The banner was cut with a Spellbinders die
and stamped with a Flourishes 'Motherly Love' stamp.

I finished with a pretty bow using RRR ribbon..

Now head on over to the Double D Challenge blog
and see the gorgeous inspiration from the team...
you will not be disappointed as these girls are fabulous!!
(Oh, we have a fun prize to give away, too)!!!

So gorgeous and feminine for your mom, Diane! Really love the square doily die and the ferns behind the tulips and, of course, the beautiful pink tulips. Got to give this a big WOW! Happy 89th birthday to your mom. I've wondered how she's doing.
