CCNS83: Mother's Day blooms

 When I first saw the this week's inspiration photo for Classy Cards 'n Such, I thought I would go with the flowers.  And then maybe the colors.  But it in the end, I went with the flowers, colors, and layout!  

I started with the large stitched rectangle from MFT Blueprint 13The cherry blossoms branch is a Darice die cut from watercolor paper that I colored with Distress Stains Picked RaspberryWalnut Stain, and the green from the Twinkling H2O's Thankful set.  The center of the flowers were done by drawing the stamens with a Versamark pen and adding gold detail embossing powder

I also used clear embossing powder over Memento Luxe Nautical blue pigment ink for my sentiment from Quietfire's Happy Family Day with Calligraphic Frame.  It still needed a little something so I added a butterfly made with PoppyStamps Cheviot and Delaney Butterflies dies out of vellum sponged with Broken China and Ocean Blue Craft Metal Sheet.
