Card challenge for Mother's Day!!...Day 65

This is my first post for Day 65-Mother's Day Card on 365 Cards Blog. I just found out about this awesome blog from my friend Sherry Button Junkie and I just had to beat her to the punch today. I think she will be shocked to see I actually participated when she gets up.

My card is 5.5" square and I used Basic Grey paper and coral chalk ink for edging. I stamped the Happy Mother's Day sentiment in a pretty green Momento ink. There are also green rhinestones from Memory Box below the sentiment. I used the St. Up corner punch and I pricked little holes in the larger corner punch out located on the upper left corner with a paper piercer on top of a foam pad. I used a Prima flower, a fancy pink flower cut from Maya Arts ribbon from Archiver's and I used Stickles on the middle of the flower. The three tiny butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and I popped their wings up. Then I painted Stickles (glitter glue on them with a small paintbrush-no mess). Thanks for stopping by. I am SO excited about this *new* 365 Cards blog. Sherry my friend, I will see you at Archiver's later on today but for now I must get some beauty rest. Its wicked late right now and I can't sleep again. Tami...nightie night!!
