Red, White & Blue

I love the way this card turned out. In making this card, I discovered that I am sorely lacking in blue floral paper. Of course, I am thinking there aren't any blue flowers, so that could be the reason for the lack of blue floral paper. Anyway - here's the card:



And here's the inside - which is where you get the Mother's Day part...





And here is how it came to be:
  • Danni's over at Danni's Dream had a challenge this week of red, white and blue...and of course, there has to be a butterfly (or fairy) on the card.


  • The sketch used on this card is from Card Patterns. This is sketch #13.


  • Lastly, 365's Monday challenge is a Mother's Day card. Since I already had a card made for my MIL and my own mother has been deceased for many years, I opted to make a card for my brother's MIL, whom I do know quite well. (So Barbara if you're reading this - Happy Mother's Day a little early.)

So one card, three challenges - I'm likin' it!
