Happy Mother's Day

Hi!

**Woohoo, thrilled that this card was chosen as Hand Stamped Sentiments Artist Pick**

I am actually sneaking in with another Mother's Day card that I worked on the end of the week, but never got a chance to post. As stated on Friday, It's proving to be a busy busy, but fun weekend, so I thought I would I would quickly share this card. (no inky time this weekend)

I also want to say thank you and hi to my new followers and email subscribers! It makes my heart smile you like what I share to want to come back and visit me. I appreciate every one of my comments! 

I started with a gray card base (Stampin' UP! ) and pieced together different papers and distressed their edges before adding it to my card base. A length of seam binding was added to the right side of my card and tied in a fussy bow dressed up with a button and some twine. 

A lacy circle was die-cut adding a pretty patterned paper circle to the center which was embellished with some beautiful paper roses. A labels three was die-cut distressing the edges and stamped using Inspired by Stamping Small Fancy Label 3.  The Happy Mother's Day sentiment is from Inspired By Stamping Floral Love.  As a final embellishing touch a linen and crochet bloom was added to the lower left of the sentiment panel.

I found inspiration at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Close to colors as I had.
