Mom

Good morning everyone!! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was fabulous. Spent a lot of time in my Crafty Room!! Now I'm ready for the new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Hope you are, too. Our wonderful Susan is our hostess for this challenge. She has challenged us to make a project honoring Mom. We also have a Guest Designer today~Michelle Criswell. She is so very talented.
I wanted to make a shaped card, so I cranked up my Gypsy Girl and pulled up the Elegant Edges cartridge. I welded to of the Eyelet 2-oblong shadows  together to make my shaped card. This cut can be found on page 52. I cut the oblong at 4.75 (2 of these), 3.75 and 3.00 inches to make my layers. 'Mom' was cut from the Mother's Day 2010 cartridge. This cut can be found at the #6 and #16 spots on the overlay. I then coated Mom in Crystal Stickles and the flower part in Cotton Candy Stickles. I added some faux pearl flourish's from Recollections. I finished off the front with a double bow using some ribbon that I dyed and crinkled. I added the sentiment on the inside. It is from the 'Mother's Day' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I'm real pleased with this card.
We so love it when you decide to join us for our challenges. So I hope you decide to this time, too. Please check out the rules on the side bar at Bitten By The Bug 2 and while you are there check out the projects my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!!! Then head to your crafty space and make a new project honoring Mom!! So looking forward to seeing what you create! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
