A Framelit Easel Card - Celebrating Mom

What a wonderful weekend it is so far! The weather was glorious yesterday!  I got my first suntan of the year :) After doing a bit of shopping and running errands, we took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a nice long walk with our dog, Keta. I then soaked up the sun while browsing through the new Stampin Up annual catalogue. It was a perfect Saturday afternoon!

I am playing along with two challenges today: Stampin Royalty's challenge is "Celebrating Mom" and the Paper Players has a Mother's Day theme as well.

I wanted to try a framelit easel card for these challenges and found a great video on youtube with simple instructions -- check it out here!

The base of the card was super easy to make! I decided to keep it fairly simple. The flower from "Blooming with Kindess" is so pretty on its own! However, I decided to add small butterflies and a rhinestone in the middle of the flower to embellish the card front. I stamped the sentiment "happy mother's day" and cut it into a flag shape. A Rich Razzleberry button acts as the 'stopper' to keep the card front upright. Here's a side view of the card:

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your Sunday. Hope it's sunny and warm where you are!
