Happy Mother's Day!

Hello Peeps!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a great mother's day!  It was National Scrapbook Day on Saturday...oooh the sales and goody bags...very exciting!  So, I got just a few things lol.  Ok, I got quite a bit and I can't wait to play with it all!

A quick post today - I want to share a card I made for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day:
The image is from Penny Black and was coloured with Distress inks.  The white doily mat was made with an EK Success edge punch (one of my new additions - love this punch!).  The butterfly is a Fiskar's mini punch and the flowers are cut from my Forever Young cricut cartridge.  The papers are really old Stampin' Up papers and the ribbon with the little hearts was a dollar store find that I have had for a very long time and had not yet used.  The lace and pearls are from KaiserCraft and the sentiment was computer generated.

I used a sketch from the Sketch n Stash Challenge; however, I did not get my card done in time to enter it :(

I would love to enter this card in these fun challenges:

Card Cupids - Flowers; I have just learned about this group and think that what they are doing is just wonderful!  Pop by their blog to learn more.

Hugs,

Dawn
