My Besties Spring Time for Mom

I am taking a small break from making my DT cards and i am playing...shhhh.  I love this image and not that i am young anymore, but when i was i looked a bit like this image..my hair style is like hers now, but i used to have long hair in my teens and short hair like this once i had had children.  Kind of made me think of Mother's Day and i am soooo tired of winter and snow that i needed to make a this spring time/ flowery card!

So i am using a My Besties Img239 for my card and a sketch from Deconstructed Sketch.
So some of the dies:
I love this Butterfly border from Noor/Joy Crafts even though it is a signature of my friend, Julie..i still wanted to use it...it's so pretty... (If you haven't see her cards using this border die you should by clicking here)

The eyelet die is one of the first ones i purchased from Marianne Designs and you can put a ribbon through it.

I've also used my trusty Martha Stewart leaf punch.

Side view to see the dimension:

Copics used:
skin- YR000, 00, E02
hair- E55, 57, 59
pants- B000, 00, 02
