Happy Mother's Day - Easel Card

It is VERY cold again here in my little part of Ontario - a perfect evening to finish off a card I started on the weekend.

I will end up making two, three or more Mother's Day cards - one for my mom, my mother in-law and my mom always asks me to make a card for my grandmother that she can give her. I like to give her a couple different choices. 

This is my first ever easel card - I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. It will be interesting to see who ends up receiving this one............

It's hard to tell but my build a banner butterfly in the top left corner is actually a coral pink paper - not red as it appears. It matches the flowers perfectly in real life. Need to work on my lighting I see......
