Mothers day cards! (Pic heavy)

This post was initially going to be to show the Mothers Day card that i had made for my Mother in Law, i was also asked if i could make 2 Mothers Day cards for a work colleague, so i decided to make 3 cards using the same image and layout.  As i use paper pads each card was different due to me not having lots of the same paper/card.  I took the commissioned cards into work and felt quite smug that i was so ahead with my Mothers Day card!  A few people saw the cards that i had made and asked if i could make them one too.  EIGHT mothers day cards! I decided to use the same layout as i thought this would be the easiest option.  Unfortunately i did not consider how fed up of making the card i would be in the end.

Netherless, i do like the cards that i made even if they are all pretty much the same!

I used an image from A Day For Daisies and added colours to match the colour theme of the card that i was using for each card.  I used WOC flowers, a flourish and some new butterfly dies ( they were a reasonable £5 for a set of 3 different butterfly styles. Most cards had a box to go with it, but i was asked to make a couple of them without boxes so that the postage was not too high, so for these cards i used flat flowers.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
