CAS Mother's Day

I hope your Sunday is going well.  I'm taking a break between gardening and dinner prep to share this card I made inspired by several challenges.  I first embossed some flowers from Verve Poppy Birthday with clear embossing powder and used my new Akashiya watercolor pens to color them in.  I really loved how they turned out and it's hard to see under the vellum but the blending was the easiest way I've done coloring.

 I die-cut a vellum tab out using MFT Blueprints 13 and embossed in purple a sentiment from Quietfire's Happy Family Day with Calligraphic Frame.  My final touch was adding a Poppystamps Elsa butterfly in Lovely Lavender metal craft sheet.
