Happy Mother's Day!

Here is a little gift card I created. 
I saw a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire and had to give it a try. 
I am thrilled with the result and can't wait to try it again with different stamps.

I started with Strathmore Watercolor paper, stamped it with VersaMark on a Studio G stamp. Embossed it with white Zing embossing powder, colored in the spaces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink markers, then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mist in Biscotti. I used the same process to make the butterfly using a stamp by Inkadinkadoo. The crochet thread is vintage, the gold pearls are by Recollections and the white base is by Bazzill. 
The final size of the card is 3" x 3".

Look at the sheen from the Perfect Pearls!

Thanks for looking! I appreciate your comments! 
Have a wonderful Mother's Day!
