Layered Card | Best Mom in the World

Hello friends!
I am blogging after a long time on my personal blog. I have been quite tied up with DT commitments, but I wanted to drop in and share this card that I created for the Papericious blog using their March release which was the Papericious Ephemera Collection. This is a gorgeous collection with some really beautiful prints! Here's my card which I made for the monthly challenge on the blog.

This was a pretty quick card to create. For the base layers, I have die-cut the pattern papers using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles die and layered them using foam dots. I then die-cut an oval frame using a Couture Creations die and white cardsotck and slightly distressed it using Vintage Photo Distress ink.
 After a long time, I have made my own flowers which have been made using the Sizzix Tattered Florals die. The leaves are from Cheery Lynn. The berries and the skeletal leaf are actually chipboard pieces from Wycianka which I have colored using Distress inks. The berries were covered with Glossy Accents to give a more natural look.
The gorgeous butterflies that you see are paper-pieced from the Ephemera collection and foam-mounted on the card base. The sentiment is from Altenew and I created a banner by sponging the background with Tattered Rose Distress ink. The seam binding ribbon was colored using Heidi Swapp Color Shine Coral mist.

I hope you like my card. I've made a layered card after a long time and truly enjoyed it. Let me know your views regarding it.

I'm entering my card in the Artful Crafting- April challenge. I was inspired by the colors and the floral patter on the tea cup and ofcourse, this card was meant for my mom, so had to make it really feminine :)
