First Friend Best Friend Forever

My Mother's Birthday is in the beginning of May and I made this birthday card for her using a stamp that I got from Unity.  I had several of there stamps from years ago, but when the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop came out and when a fellow blogger and a past DT member that I worked with Cynthia had a Unity posting I saw some of the newer stamps and fell in love with them.  I picked up this set called, First Friend, Best Friend Forever which is not listed on the site and they recently had it as a freebie if you ordered a certain amount of stamps so I'm not sure if it is still available.  I just love the sentiment, which I put on the inside of the card.  My Mom doesn't come on my blog so she won't see it.  I added some white butterflies and pearly accents to the card besides I used Derwent Watercolor pencils instead of Copics.  I put green bling on the card since her birthday is in May and the birthstone is Emerald and to match the leaves.
