Mother

With Mothers' Day coming up, Sunny Challenges have requested a card especially for Mum with an interesting sketch to go with it.
 
I don't own a stamp for this occasion so had to make do.  I also would have loved a slightly larger circle for my main butterfly as it looked so pretty before I cut into it.
 
All SU
Stamps:  Swallowtail; Papillon Potpourri
Card:  Primrose Petals; Tempting Turquoise; Summer Starfruit
Ink:  Markers in above colours
Tools:  Big shot; Honeycomb embossing folder
 
The photo shows the colours as quite dark but in real life that blue is a beautiul turquoise.
