Mother's Day Card #2

I made this card for my dad to give my mom for Mother's Day. I cut the flower card at 6" from Wild Card, then again at 5" and 4" and cut off the back part of the card. I used Core Couture and DCWV Shimmer Stack paper for the flowers. The background paper is DCWV Mariposa stack. The butterfly was cut at 1" from Picturesque. I added swirly stamps on the flower petals and gems. The ribbon is from my stash, no clue where I got it.
I can't tell you how excited I was to use my Scrappy Moms stamps for the first time that I won from Tammy at Scrappy Critters! These stamps are so awesome! They make a clean, dark impression. Love it!

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  1. Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #11 - Mother's Day
  2. Cricut Cardz Challenge #72 - Use a cart with a card feature and include a flower
  3. Cooking With Cricut Challenge #27 - Spring - flowers

Thanks so much for looking and have a great evening :)
