Marigolds and Morpho Mother's Day Card

I just had to make a card last night with the newly released Marigolds and Morpho set from Fred She Said.
The image I used for this card is pre-colored but it also comes in a digi set for you to color yourself.
I fussy cut three of the butterflies out and layered for lots of dimension. 

If you're wondering why I made it for Mother's Day, well, it's because I thought the image was perfect for that. But also because I'm always so far behind in stocking my Etsy shop that I thought I would get a head start.

The crystal flourishes, Color Ready seam binding and retired papers are all from Close to my Heart.

The hand stitching was done with my own unique design in matching Embroidery Floss.

The design for this card started with a sketch from My Time Made Easy Pretty Patterns Sketch Challenge.
