Mother's Day Card/Wee Memories Challenge #53

Hi there. Another day, another challenge around here ;). Today, I wanted to share a card I made a little while ago to submit for a Paper Crafts publication call - which it wasn’t picked up for. At least I can share on it here now ;). I made it for my mom for Mother’s Day. I was thinking it’s perfect for the Wee Memories Challenge #53:
YAY! Girlyness... I think this card may just be perfect for her! Here’s a look:

The patterned paper is from a 6x6 pad of Bo Bunny’s “Crazy Love”. I’m really liking the 6x6 paper pads. They’re perfect for smaller patterns of great patterned paper - perfect for cards. I used Lawn Fawn’s Sew Lovely, Bannerific, and Jessie’s ABCs. I’m loving that Lacy Martha Stewart Punch, but haven’t used it much at all. Thought this was a nice project for it. The pink silky ribbon is from May Arts, I believe. I accented it with some bakers twine from The Twinery, and a Basic Grey Button. The toole is Glitz Designs. It was included in my 1st Paper Niche DT Kit, back in February. I love the girly twist it gives the silhouette.

It’s right up my mom’s alley. Girly & fun. I'm thinking I need to make another for my mother-in-law ;).

I’ll be back tomorrow with my Paper Niche May sneaky peeks. EEK! I love this kit. It had... WAIT FOR IT... Crate Paper!!! I made a special request - and got my wish!!! I love the projects I got out of the kit - and had tons of goodies left over. Can. Not. Wait. To. Share!!! Thanks for peeking at my goodies!!! I hope you have an awesome day.
