No Electricity. I made a card anyway.

Hello Bloggers,
This morning we lost electricity just as I was thinking it's time to get to my own creative projects.  I had planned on making a Mother's Day card when the lights went out.  Well make lemon aide out of lemons as the saying goes.  I can still make a card without using my many electrical tools. LOL.  I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder Julie's Garden on the card base and the white layer which was cut with Spellbinders scallop die. I inked over the base card with Memento Summer Blue ink. I layered the card with a white doily that I also inked over with Memento Danube Blue ink. The blue rose was from Michaels budget bin.  The inside of the card was layered with spellbinders dies and I embossed the blue paper with the Cuttlebug daisy folder. The butterfly was from a bag of confetti that I had in my stash.  I love to read your comments. Thanks for stopping by. I entered this card in the following challenges:
