Mother's Day card

The butterfly on this card is from Indie Art and the flowers are from Doodlecharms.  The oval was actually a scrap from a project I did last night.  (I'm so proud of myself for finally using one of those extra die cuts I save!)  The purple rectangle was run through the Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots.  The faces in the flowers are Peachy Keen PK-570.

If I were to make this card again, I would probably make the flowers smaller or put a bouquet of them in the center of the oval rather than the butterfly.  I always put extra shapes on my Gypsy mat when I make a project in case any of them don't cut well.  All of them did cut well this time, so I have extras and may try some of those other variations.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
