Birthday Card for Mom

Inspired by Kittie from Kittie Krafts and by the challenge that Enfys has at Going Buggy, called Lace and Butterflies, I made this card not only to enter it in the challenge but also for mom for her birthday. I love the way it came out - Spring is definately in the air :) or maybe it's just me wishful thinking?! The window is from the Christmas Noel cartridge. The butterflies and the flowers were all made using various punches. For the window box, I cut an extra piece of white cardstock and ran it thru the Cuttlebug using a woodgrain embossing folder from Paper Studio. For the centres of the flowers I used a little tiny drop from the Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White. I just didn't have tiny pearls in my stash and I think this worked just fine. I just saw that Mary from Cardz TV also has a wonderful challenge going called "Anything Goes". I think I'm going to enter this card in that challenge too :)
