"Mother's Day Card" for my Mother

I haven't told my mother about my blog yet, so it should be perfectly safe to post this.
My mother loves birds.  She especially likes Blue Birds.  So, when I found this pretty digital stamp with Sweet' N Sassy Stamps, called, "Birds & Roses", I was very excited. 
I pulled up pictures of Blue Birds in my computer gallery to look at while I colored in the birds with my copic markers.
The sentiment is Stampin Up, "Blessed Mother".  The card stock and decorative paper is also from Stampin Up.
The butterflies are made with Stampin Up, "Embosslits Beautiful Wings" and decorated with gem stones.
I cut my colored image out and adhered it to the pink die cut from my large scalloped Nestabilities.
The pink lace, white lace, heart charm, gem stones and ribbon is from my stash of treasures.
I am hoping to enter this card in a few Challenges.  This is totally new territory for me and I'm really excited!
Sweet & Sassy Stamps is having their very first challenge!  This is perfect for me, since this is my very first real challenge as well! 
The challenge is SNSDC1 "All About Mom"
