The Mother's Day Countdown Begins...

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!! Being I was off from work on Tuesday for Meredith's Birthday (she is 3 now!), my days are ALL sorts of screwed up! I just realized that I have ONE card done for Mother's Day, and hardly any time to make all the other's that I need!! Thus, the Mother's Day countdown begins!!!

Here is my card for yesterday's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC227, and for today's Ways To Use It Challenge, WT217, Kool Kraft!!

For my card, I used these awesome flower and vase images (they are two separate stamps!!) from the Fresh Flowers set from Taylored Expressions, and I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock, and then colored them with Copic Markers. I added white gel pen highlights to certain parts of the flower and vase to make it pop.

The DSP is a mix of the retired Petals and Paisley (which I still LOVE), and Pink Flamingo (which I LOVE!!!). I used my Scallop Edge Punch to create my side scallops, and I also adding some paper piercing, two little white brads from Making Memories and finished off my card with some White Satin Ribbon!!

The sentiment is framed in Circle and Scallop Circle Punches!! Woo Hoo! A card to add to the Mother's Day box!! Yippee!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
