For any mom - Eureka challenge #191

My mom has been gone for several years, so I made a card for any mom.
 This week the challenge at Eureka Stamps, #191, (Eureka Stamps Blogspot) is to create a feminine or Mother's Day card.  You have until Sunday, May 8, at 3pm EDT to enter.  You may enter up to 3 times, and you can win 2 Eureka digi images - three, if you use an image from Eureka. Please join us! I used a pretty image called "Mixed Bouquet", and a sentiment that says "It's a special day".  You can find both of these digis and many more, both rubber stamps and digis, at the Eureka site.
I used this sentiment so it could be for any woman on Mother's Day.  I chose soft pastels - the green and white is one of my favorite combos.  The delicate butterfly is by Cheery Lynn, and I added some frilly ribbon.
