Colorful Mother's Day Card...

Hey, hey, hey!!!  Today I have this lovely  Mother's day card that I wanted to share.  This is being submitted into the FCCB Color Challenge.  I really love how it turned out and was quite surprised at myself.  It's been a while since I have done any cards.  I needed a break from life and now I'm back w/ mojo flowing!  :) 

The challenge was to use purple, turquoise and green in the project.  I just used all three colors and went bold!  These are some of my mom's favorite colors, so this card will be going to her!  I used Wild Card cartridge for the argyle design.  I love argyle!!!

 The stamp set is from Emma from My Creative Time.   It's called "Mom You Rock."  I bought this last year and used it a few times.  I love her stamps!  The sparkles are, of course, stickles!  :)  All the card stock comes from CTMH.
 The paper flowers and butterfly are from Close To My Heart.  I inked them with matching CTMH ink in Dutch Blue, Green Garden and Hydrangea.  The awesome purple polka dot button comes from Purple Pumpkin.  This button is a size large and measures about 1"...maybe slightly over.  This size or smaller is perfect for cards.  When I first bought from them I didn't know the difference.  I purchased mostly XL buttons.  I haven't used any of those yet, bc I'm unsure how to fit them onto cards.  Those buttons are about 1.5".  I think those buttons were made for scrapbook pages.  But we'll see..... 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed!  :)  Have a great day!!!
