Happy Mother's Day

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday! 
  I've been working on a few Mother's day cards and I wanted to share this one with you.  I challenged myself to make a true pastel color card.  NO bright or bold colors!!  Yikes!  It was a little difficult for me because I usually don't work with pastel colors.  But I'm so glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone because I'm very pleased with the way this card turned out!  :)  

My card feature a sweet Rachelle Anne Miller image and it's colored with Copics.  I stamped an extra flower so I could pop it up.  The sentiment is Hero Arts, the papers are from K&Co. and I used a MS punch for the butterflies.  Added a button, a few gems and voila it's done! 
That's about it for now... enjoy the rest of your day and thanks so much for stopping by!
