Thinking of you for Mother's Day

Hello dear readers, I waited until the day after to reveal the Mother's Day card I sent to my mom.  I thought the butterflies were perfect for this holiday.  However, this could be a great pick me up card for any occasion.  Any PIvot Card Die set can help you create a wow factor card easily. This die cut mechanism is just about the simplest to make, just line it up on your crease with one pass through your machine.  All this is left is to decorate.

I used the complimentary Elizabeth Craft Designs Butterfly Accessory dies to help accessorize the card. I used a flourish stamp to lightly add some interest to the shimmer cover stock I used for the base.  The thicker the base the better the pivot mechanism will endure.

I added bling to the antenna and the centers of the flowers.  I used more shimmer paper and pretty prints for additional decorative cuts.  I finished off the card with a die cut sentiment.
