Beautiful Bloom

Happy sunny Tuesday! It is so nice to see the sun again.

The card that I am going to share today was made for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #67. I thought it would be a perfect sketch to use for my mother-in-law's Mother's Day card.

This coordinates nicely with the rest of the gift that I put together for her. I will share that with you later in the week :)

The card base is PTI Sweet Blush. The two front panels are both stamped with images from Guide Lines using Sahara Sand ink onto PTI SS White. I liked how this added a little somethin' more than just plain cardstock. The bottom panel is stamped with the leafy branch image from Beautiful Blooms. The front is a flower combination (Sweet Blush and Hibiscus Burst). The strip of patterned paper was left over from this card. I have a few of these little strips sitting around from when I trimmed the images - putting my scraps to good use! I also punched out some butterflies from the leftover scraps, and added some bling to finish it off!

Short and sweet today! Thanks for stopping by, its great to see you! :)
