A Mother's day Card for my Mom-In-Law!

I had been wanting to do a Card for my Mother-In-Law for the past one week and I totally was struck with other household work.

Today Morning, When I woke up to realize I have not done a card to wish my Mom-in-Law.

I wanted a sketch to quickly follow, I suddenly remembered seeing a sketch yesterday @ sketchsaturday challenges. I quickly referred the sketch. Decided to use the pleasant colors from the Crafter's corner challenge. And did this card in almost an hour.

Am so happy with the outcome actually. And my MIL loved it too.

The sketch I followed

And the Recipe I followed with the color scheme

My Card :

Am entering this card to the following challenges :

    Recipe : 
    1. One die cut/Punch:The Butterfly

    3. Three embellishments : Feathers from my Stash, Pielane embellishments in the corner, Pink pearl
