Roses for My Mother

 I made this card with Vintage, Shabby Chic, Mother's Day, butterflies, fancy folds and other ideas in mind.  I will be entering it into several challenges. The image on the front is from Magic Moonlight and the inside Rose Graphic is from Graphics Fairy.  I used the Joy Fold design for my card which I have shown with the card closed with a ribbon and also opened to show the inside.

Sugar Creek Hollow: Fancy Folds -Create cards with more than one fold that are vintage, shabby chic or primitive. Use joy fold...think this one is Shabby Chic...not sure if this vintage or shabby chic but could be both???
Our Creative Corner: Week's challenge is butterflies...I have one lovely butterfly on the front graphic and more on the inside.
Ribbon Carousel Challenge: Anything Goes
CRAFTS AND ME Challenge: Theme is embossing.
Repeat Impressions DCC425: This challenge at The House That Stamps Built is to create a card for a Woman you love....this is for my Mother.
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge:  Anything Goes

Graphics from Magic Moonlight "Heart with Rose" and Graphics Fairy "Old Rose"
Stamps: Sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers
Inks: Memento Bamboo Leaves and Distress Ink Antique Linen
Papers: Wausau Antique Parchment Finish CS, Green, Ivory, and Pink CS from Scraps
Punch:  MS Double Loop Around the Page  punches, Butterfly Punch
Cuttlebug EF Kassie's Brocade
Organza Ribbon and Rhinestones from Stash  

Hope you find some joy in a card today.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
