♥ Thanks for being you, Mom! ♥

Today is my Mom's birthday and I wanted to get this card in before the day was over. My Mom is the most un-selfish woman, person, I know. She would literally do anything for her children. She means everything to me and I love her so much. She is such a beautiful person, inside and out. Happy Birthday Mom! I inspire to be a great Mom like you!

This card is for her.
I used some Echo Park, Springtime paper, A vintage label from The Graphics Fairy, a Prima Rose dabbed with some light blue ink and chunky glitter, ribbon, punched MS butterflies from Kraft cardstock, pearls and some Melissa Frances rub-on transfers.
I was inspired to use these beautiful colors from the My Time Made Easy blog. Pretty Palette 02.
And I also used this week's challenge over at The Kraft Journal, "Flowers".

Happy Birthday again Mom! Have fun in Tennessee!

Hugs and much love...
