CR84FN Challenge

This week the CR84FN gals used another gorgeous color combination for their challenge.
Such lovely neutrals with a splash of green!  So much fun to work with.  I decided to do a Mother's Day card, as it is fast approaching.  My new Papertrey tag dies and stamps came in the mail today and I was anxious to use them, so I incorporated them into my card. I used an inked Cuttlebug folder to do the front panel of my card.  This is what I came up with. . .

I want to point out the button I used for the center of my Prima flower.  My grandmother used to often remove the buttons on clothes before she threw them out.  When she died, she left behind a tin full of buttons, some of which go back to the 1930's and maybe even further.  My mother gave me a  bag full and I thought it would be cool to use one on my mom's card!  Here is a close-up of the button. . .
I can see why Grandma kept this one!  An early Happy Mother's Day to all you moms and grandmas.
