Mother's Day Butterflies

Hello Again! 

Back for a second post today- Yes, I was a busy crafter this weekend!
Can you believe that Mother's Day is right around the corner?  I whipped up a card for my Mom so I could get it in the mail. It takes a few days to get to Florida. 
I inked up my new April KOTM from Unity. 

I was drawn to the large butterfly in the set and decided to use distress inks for water coloring them. 
I did not want to take away from the butterflies, so I kept the layout simple, with a cs strip for the sentiment.  Doilies add a bit of girly-ness to the card. 
I used my MISTI to stamp my butterflies in the color of choice, and then once colored and dried, I stamped the image again in dark brown.  I love how this turned out.  The purples in the photo did not photograph well; the purple butterfly and the purple mat are much closer in color irl. 
I am playing along in a few challenges~
