Flowers and Butterflies!

I'm back with another Mother's Day card!
It was loads of fun making this card!  I think my color focus has shifted to purple now...3 of the last 6 cards I've posted have been purple...oh well!
I started this card by first punching out the border at the bottom with my Martha Stewart page punch.  This card was wonderful in helping me use up a bunch of my random scrap pieces that are just odd sized and difficult to regularly use.  The paper used for the border and butterfly were these long 1 1/4 x 12 inch pieces of paper that I had left over from a Christmas gift...they already had adhesive on the back of them and I didn't realize it until after I punched it...but it worked out great for sticking it down.  The adhesive was already cut to the right shape!
The flowers are cut from templates I made following a few flower designs from the Cricut Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge.  I cut several layers, decreasing the sizes as I went, then inked the edges in purple, pinched or rolled them and glued them all together.  The centers are cut from pearled paper and then completed with a small pearl.
I printed off the digi sentiment and wrapped it with a white ribbon and attached a small bow.
The final step was adding all the paint dots.  I'm still practicing my consistency with their size :)
