Cherish Today and Every Day

 Welcome! I am a bit late but wishing my Mother and all those Mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day.  Hoping it was a day to cherish.

I have made my card in this post using a photo inspiration and color challenge from Crafty Friends and also incorporating a sketch challenge from Card Patterns.  I was inspired by the flower in the photo to create a 3D flower of the same color using punches and dies. I used layers of the 5 colors  following the design of the sketch. Can you believe there was no coloring or copics used in the making of this project? I was going to die cut a butterfly but found the button and thought it was perfect to use.
