Mother's Day Card for My Mom

The other Mother's Day cards that I made went to OWH but this is the one I will be giving my mom.  She is 92.  I am so blessed to have had her all these years.  I always try to make her a card that is a little special or out of my ordinary.

This was fun to make because I used a Silhouette cutting file making that beautiful white flower and vine cut out.  Then I did a technique that I have never done before. I think it is called smooshing.  I put a few drops of ink on an acrylic block, spritzed it with water and then "smooshed" the cut butterfly onto the ink.  I really like how it turned out.
Here is what I did to the inside:

Pile it On - mother's day
Sweet Stamps - mother's day
Papertakes - anything
Inspiration Destination - anything
Word Art Wednesday - anything
Craftin Desert Divas - mother's day
Simon Work It Wednesday - yellow
