Thanks Mom

I made this card with three challenges in mind. The Cheery Lynn challenge is for mom and of course, must have at least one Cheery Lynn die cut. The Stampsmith challenge is colors of spring  and must have at least one Stampsmith image.
The Mojo Monday challenge is a sketch challenge (see left).
My card is a 5x7 card. I used a bright yellow card base . I cut the squares from blue, lilac, and green cardstock. The butterflies are the mini butterfly set from Cheery Lynn. I alternated the styles of butterflies and I alternated the colors of pink and yellow. I used colors I felt really represented spring. The image is from Stampsmith and is bordered by a Cheery Lynn die cut from the reflections boutique mini pearl circle.  The tag is a metal one and is stamped with Stazon ink. The sentiment is from Club Scrap.
I have to admit that as I was working on this card I was afraid that it would be too busy and that the colors would be too much. I was really happy with the final results.
