Happy Mother's Day

I'm popping in this evening to share a card I made for Operation Write Home. Until the end of this month they are collecting Mother's Day cards.

I am also entering this card in a couple of challenges.

The first challenge is over at Retro Sketches. This weeks sketch:

The second challenge is over at Dynamic Duos. The color combo this week is soft pink and stone.

For my card I used some pretty paper by Authentique and cut file from Silhouette Studio for the butterfly.

I did some masking on my sentiment stamp so that I could use two colors of ink. A few little pearls on the butterfly add a touch of elegance.

Supplies used: card stock - white; patterned paper - Cheerful in Delightful by Authentique; Silhouette Studio cut file; pearls - Kaiser Craft; stamp - Unity; ink - Staz On and Stampin' Up
