Mother's Day card for M-I-L

Because Vera (M-I-L) doesn't like anything modern, cute, humourous, in fact anything other than traditional, it was hard coming up with an idea for a card for her. I still had to like what I was doing. So, this is what I came up with, I didn't spend too long on it as she doesn't keep any cards. Very different for me but hopefully Vera will like it.

The papers are from a 6" x 6" pad by K & Co. The background paper has four squares of different colours. I cut around the flowers of the blue poppy paper and as there are six of each sheet I was happy to cut into a couple of other sheets to do a bit of decoupage of some of the petals and the butterfly. A bit of glitter glue here and there and the sentiment was printed on the computer and cut with Nesties.
