Mother's Day Card

It's been SO long since I updated my blog that I decided to show you one of the cards I made today. This is a Mother's Day card or I guess it could be a 'just because' card for Mom since it doesn't say anything about Mother's Day...but at this point it's a Mother's Day card.

Pink card blank with the back layer being a grey "Pastel Parchment" paper from Westrim Crafts and the top layer being a light pink from who-knows-what package of cardstock! The bouquet of flowers I cut on the Cricut with SCAL, colored the flowers with Cotton Candy Stickles and used a Butterscotch-dyed Skittle for the center of each flower. The back layer is punched with a Martha Stewart doily punch and the front layer is cut out of a scallop circle on the Cricut with SCAL and cut down to fit the size I wanted. Mom is also cut on the Cricut with SCAL.
I bought a photo storage box at Hobby Lobby the other day, so I'm going to *TRY* to start making some cards to store for future use. I have this Mother's Day card and one 'just because' card in the box with all the little tabs labeled for different occasions. I hope to start to work on my Christmas cards by mid-May. Wish me luck! ;o)
Pin It!

There we go! And great job again. I am also thinking about getting a storage box to store cards that i have made. I was watching a video by the pink stamper,she has a ton of boxes filled with cards I would love to get that far that I can have a card for everything!

Very may have "borrowed" ideas for parts of the card elsewhere, but the flowers and the "mom" you cut make it totally your own. So pretty and I know she'll love it!
