Mother's Day Cards

I know that we're a bit late for Mother's Day, but the basic design of each of these cards would work perfectly for any occasion.  I worked "backwards" on each of these, starting with the embellishment I wanted to use first and then building the card to compliment that.  
The bird/flower and the butterflies came from K & Company.  Beautiful and sparkly too!
As always, I used scrap paper to create each card, using kraft paper for the card base.  I used a Sizzix die to cut the yellow dotted paper, distressing all around the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I hand cut and stamped the little banner piece.  Easy peasy and so pretty! 
 The butterflies are dimensional and feature wire antenna.  I created the "MOM" using white sticker letters that I applied to and punched out from brown card stock.  The brown ribbon is shot through with gold.  So feminine and super easy to create!
