Mother's Day

>> Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Hi Everyone,
Well, I must say I feel on top of things regarding this holiday.  Not only do I have a Mother's Day card finished and ready to share with you today, but I actually have my mother-in-law's gift purchased and ready to give! Woo-hoo :)  I had a floral arrangement (silk, obviously) made for her coffee table.  It was something she asked for at Christmas, but I wasn't able to make it happen.  I'm famous for thinking, I gotta remember this idea for next time.  And of course I don't. The exception being now...However, I like to think this is a turning point, and a sign that I might be more organized this year ;)
Anyway, I chose one of my favorite floral stamps from DRS Designs, the Dogwood Branch.  I colored it with Copics, die cut it and added some Stickles. I chose the background stamps, 
Three Butterflies and Background Branch and colored them to match the main image.

I embossed one of the die cuts and was so excited to find that my flowered ribbon fit in my punched border strip perfectly.  I love happy accidents.  Finally, I simply added the On Mother's Day greeting to finish it off.

As a reminder, our current challenge here on the blog is "Bows", so I hope you get a chance to enter!

Have a great day!
