Mother's Day Card Using Imagine That Teacup Pansies and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is having a great month of May.  It should be warming up, at least in the US.  I think it is winter in other parts of the world.   We will be on vacation soon; so if you don't see me on here for a few weeks; don't worry.  I will be back when my daughter and 3 grandkids fly back to MO; after their visit in June.  I am so excited!  I can hardly wait to see my family!  I am so ready to leave right now!  LOL!  I miss my mother and all of my family so much!  It is such a challenge to live so far away from them; but CA is where I need to be at this time in my life.  

I created another card for my mother using this awesome Imagine That! Digis by Kris - Teacup Pansies.  I used the pre-colored image and the sentiment on the outside.  Kris does such a fabulous job in creating her awesome digis.  Be sure to check out the Imagine That Progressive Challenge each month on her blog.  Purchase the current month's digi on her website (at a discount); create a card with it; enter into her challenge and you will receive the next month's image free.  It always includes black and white images and colored ones too; plus sentiments.  It is so fun to create with her designs.  She has two to choose from for this month; so everyone who entered last month received both sets of images for this month.

The blue flowers are really two shades of purple; but camera turns it blue.
Oops!  Looks like one of the purple bling fell off the butterfly.  I don't have time to retake it.

Inside Card
This is purple cardstock (CTMH Gypsy); but camera made it look blue.
