Happy Mother's Day

Happy Monday peeps! I LOVE how this card turned out!!! :o) I stamped the Lace background stamp from PinkByDesign with a smokey grey ink. I then used my blending tools and distress inks in worn lipstick and pumice stone to get this shabby look. I used my Martha Stewart 3 in 1 butterfly punch for the butterflies that I used the same stamping technique on. I also gave them a good misting of perfect pearls in the perfect pearl {white} color. You can see the shine a little better here...
The sentiment is from Emma's set called Mom You Rock. I hope you like this one as much as I do! ;) I have a brand new chalk ink pad just waiting to get used...so, I'm off to get my inkin' on!
