Happy Mother's Day

Random Chip Stickers Crate Paper, Chicken Wire Stamp 
Set - Waltzingmouse Stamps, Sentiment - Hero Arts SD395, 
Butterfly Die - PTI, Sap Green Ranger Archival Ink, Tuxedo

This card started out life as a St Patrick's Day card! At least that was what it was going to be in my head!  

I got a little diverted by the Hero Arts stamp set (below) that arrived from Simon Says Stamp on Friday morning and hey presto - a Mother's Day card was born!.  I won the set recently on SSS - part of their National Craft month celebrations.
Thanks to SSS for the wonderful stamp set.

Happy Mother's Day to everyone celebrating with their own Moms/sisters/aunts/daughters/loved ones today.

LOVE the way you used the chicken wire on this card, Deirdre! So charming with the butterfly and the beautiful doily...the colors are so fresh and fun for a Mother's Day card. Glad you could join the WMSC this week!
