2S4Y Card Sketch

Morning blog peeps!  Hope you're enjoying your Saturday so far.  I had a nice and relaxing morning and did a bit of blurfing, which was fun.  That's how I came across doing this challenge today and also came across my inspiration to create the flower on my card!  Here's a look at Laura's Sketch 49 from 2S4Y:
Then, I saw this flower tutorial on The Wedding Chicks blog, so I wanted to figure out how to incorporate it on the card!  Here's a look at the full card.
Isn't the flower fun?  Here's another look at it, from the side view:
Turns out, it's so easy to do! I'd love to make a vase of these...yet another project I'll have to get to.  And lastly, the butterfly - I sponged the edges with Creamy Carmel to soften it up a bit:
Now, you've gotten a look at all the card elements...Here's the recipe for you.
{Bloom and Butterfly for Mom}
*Stamps: SU! Messages for Mom; PTI Turning a New Leaf
*Inks: SU! Regal Rose and Old Olive
*Cardstock: SU! Sweet Pea DSP, So Saffron, Very Vanilla Textured CS, Whisper White, Walk in the Park DSP {retired}
*Accessories: Flower Layers die, SU! Beautiful Butterflies die, Scallop Circle punch (for the flower center); PTI Button and string
Hope you like it!  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Enjoy your weekend :)

ETA:  Pals Paper Art's got a flower challenge this week, too, so I'm adding this card in as my second entry ;)
