For Mom!

The weekend is over and it got cold here today. Very odd here for this time of year. Today I have a Mother's Day. It is a little different from the usual cards that I make. But, I really like this flower. The CS is Stampin Up. The embossing folder is Cottage Floral by Crafting Concepts. The flower is Build a Blossom stamp set by Stampin Up. The flower petals were stamped with Pink Passion ink and the leaves are stamped with Wild Wasabi ink. Each petal and leaf is then punched out with the coordinating punch and put together to make a flower. The ink and punch are all from Stampin Up. The button is from Basic Grey and the twine is Pink Sorbet from The Twinery. The ribbon and bling are from my stash. I also used a corner punch from Stampin Up to punch the corners.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:

Crafty Creations - Challenge #16 - White Space
