Mother's Day Cards

I decided to post this card under a new post instead of adding it to the post with my other card, for my BFF. I made two of these cards, one for my mother and one for my MIL. My mom's is being given to her later this month with her present when I see her, but my MIL's is being mailed by my hubby with her gift.
I used some teal card stock out of my stash for the base. The  background paper was from K&Company designer mat pad. I love the colors in this pad, green, teal, and browns. The edges are punched with Fisker's border punches.  I sprayed the paper with Tsukineko's sheer spritz sparkle.  I used Spellbinder's "Beaded Circles," for the outside circle and "Standard Circles Large," for the inside circle. The flower stamp is. I used  to color it and added bling to the center.  The bottom butterfly was punched out of the same coordinating paper with an EK Stampin' Up butterfly stamp and the top one is a MS butterfly punch. I used glitter gloss pens to accent it and some bling. The flower is by Prima with bling in the center. The rickrack and ribbon are out of my stash, from many years of collecting these items for sewing. LOL The flower and sentiment stamps are from "Messages for Mom" set by Stampin' Up, as well as the mom stamp on the inside. I embossed the sentiment and used Copics on the flower.

I hope they both like their cards, even though they will receive them late.
