butterfly for Mom's Day

Hey there blog peeps!  Soooo glad the weekend is here!  Today, I'm sharing my second swap card that I created for my SWAP Team group, which was a Mother's Day themed card.  I know you've probably figured out that I'm pretty infatuated with my Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die since I've rediscovered it a couple of weeks ago.  I can't seem to get enough of the butterflies!  Here's a look at the Mother's day card I made:
I do love the Melon Mambo and Apricot Appeal color combo!  It's such a bright and happy palette. Now that we'll be saying goodbye to Apricot Appeal at the end of June, I definitely want to show how pretty it looks, especially in the Springy and Summertime cards you can create!  I sure will miss it personally (of course, I will probably order a few packs of cardstock and hoard it for my own personal use!)  What's unexpected in the color combo is the little bit of Bashful Blue.  I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked my trio flowers with the soft blue centers!  Here's the recipe for you:
