Happy Mother's Day

I finally made a card for Mother's Day! I just got this watering can a little bit ago from Magnolia. It just hit me right so I bought it. I don't usually buy a stamp I can't think of a particular repetitive purpose for but hey, can't be like that all the time! So I stamped and heat embossed it in black e.p. then colored it with water color crayons. I used the new Basic Grey Wisteria collection paper and just loved the paper and it fit well with the water can stamp. I didn't like the color of blue I had on the can once I put it on the paper but nice thing about water color crayons is you can blend right over the already dried color. So I added sage shadow to the blue I already had and it worked! I decided to cut it out because when I mounted it, it covered the majority of this pretty paper and I couldn't have that! The yellow card stock that matched so well happened to have a piece already embossed in my scraps so I cut it down to fit and used another card stock to mat it. I used my favorite butterflies yet again and done. So there we have it! Happy Mother's Day to all my mom friends, may you feel loved this day!

What a fun image -- I didn't even know Magnolia had a watering can or I would have been tempted, too. Great DP; the butterfly theme is perfect!
