happy mother's day ♥

today i'm sharing the project that i made for my dear mom for mother's day. because i was quickly running out of time to make a gift and have it arrive in time for mother's day, i opted for something quick and easy. this is what i came up with.

for this i used some CTMH papers, the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, and some Prima flowers i had layin around. the butterfly is a stamp that i embossed and cut out. i also used Prima leaves, some flowers i had in my stash, some lace and i made a pin with some colored pearls. the punch i used on the left edge is a Martha Stewart punch. around the edge i used some Tim Holtz crackle paint to hide the edges as i attached the project to some heavy chip board and the edges were visible. i'm entering this in the Fantabulous Cricut monday challenge.
i hope every mother out there has a very special mother's day, and thanks so much for stopping by today.
