Mother's Day retro card

Hi all!

With Mother's Day right around the corner, I had some time last night to work on the card I'll be giving my mom this weekend. I chose to play along with the sketch from the wonderful retro sketches site and also the Ribbon Carousel blog that challenged us to make a card for a particular celebration. So here's my card and the sketch.

This Mother's Day will be a special one because I'll have my parents in town. That also meant I didn't have to worry about the card being too bulky to mail! I kept the sketch "as is" because it worked well for what I had in mind. I just tweaked the sentiment a bit to make it a banner and added an image. The paper is from My Mind's Eye and the die is from Simon Says Stamp!. The butterfly was colored in using inktense pencils and then I misted it with some Glitter Mist. The sentiment is from a set that I found in the dollar bin--love it when that happens! I added a few pearls and the card was done.

Hope everyone has a lovely Mother's Day,
