My Craft Spot's Challenge #136 Mother's Day/Spring

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Good Morning!
It's time for our new weekly challenge at My Craft Spot and the challenge this week is:
Happy Mother's Day/Spring!

I have to admit that I am sad this will be my last DT project for My Craft Spot:(  I have had so much fun being on the team and I want to say "Thank You" to Kimberly for the opportunity she gave me.  She has been so amazing to work with and the DT members are the best! I will miss you all at My Craft Spot and hope to join you again sometime in the near future.
With summer approaching and my son's wedding around the corner, I will be kept busy. I hope to get back in the swing of things once things settle a bit.

Here is my project: 
I have a Mother's Day card to share with you that I made for my wonderful Mother. I know she will probably see this in advance since she visits my blog....
So, hope you like it Mom!
I started with a yellow card base and using a Martha Stewart punch added a fun border to the base of the card. The base layer is papers from Echo Parks-Sweet Girl collection.  I followed with a panel of polka dot pattern paper from this pack and then topped it with a pretty paper doily. I then cut another smaller panel and stamped Happy Mother's day with My Craft Spot's
 Jar Full of Flowers stamp set.
The center is a Tiny Doilies 2 which I cut two of them. I used foam tape and layered them on top of each other for dimension. I stamped the sentiment in the center of the doily with the Simply Sentiments stamp set. 
The butterflies are also from the Jar Full of  Flowers stamp set which I stamped, fussy cut around, added sparkly ice glitter to each of them and adhered them in place.
The flower cluster is created with an assortment of flowers from Recollections. The Lovely Tendril metal die was used for the leaves. I also cut a few leaves using vellum at 3/4 from the Art Philosophy cartridge and tucked them in the cluster as well. (Thanks Lisa for the idea)
I finished it off by tying a fun sheer double bow and adding a pretty little embellishment in the center of the bow.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Cut it Up Challenge #44 Mother's Day
2.) Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #9 Flowers
3.) Paper Issue's Mum's the word
4.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it off Saturday
5.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #48 Anything Goes
6.) My Sheri Crafts Challenge #132 In Celebration of Moms
7.) Sweet Stamps Challenge #167 Photo Inspiration
8.) Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party #30 Mother's Day
Thanks for stopping!
