mothers day card

I had a few hours to myself today and for the first time in a long time I was able to make a card "just for fun" I decided to make a mothers day card because all to often when there's an occasion coming up and I do mean any and every occasion, I usually get caught up in orders and have to buy cards for me to send to my loved ones which, not surprisingly goes down like a lead balloon. Not this year though - I am determined to get my act together,  I'll decide closer to the day whether this is for my mum or my mum in law depending on how successful I actually am at getting my act together :)

The main topper is from a Kanban kit I got ages ago, the frames and butterflies are spellbinders dies purchased more recently.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges (and, if I have time tomorrow I'll try to take another picture of it that isn't so blurry)
