Inspired by Stamping Featured Designer

Happy Mother's Day to you!

**I am thrilled to share that this card was chosen as Papercraft Stars Runner Up and given the Quasar Award**

Today over on Joanna's blog Inspired By Stamping I am the featured Design Team member. I am still truly excited to have been asked to join her Design Team along with the other talented ladies.  I am so honored!  Joanna will be featuring a new designer each Sunday and today is my turn. I have a card to share with you that I have made for today's event. 

I started by adding a fun patterned paper strip to the right side of my black and kraft polka-dot paper. A length of burgundy grosgrain ribbon was tied around the lower portion of the patterned paper panel and tied into a double bow embellishing with a beautiful flower  to the center. 

The beautiful clock is from the new release Paris and coordinates nicely with Spellbinders standard circles. I chose to go with the nestie that would give me a border, but the smaller nestie fits it perfectly. A banner was hand-cut and stamped with a sentiment from Small Fancy Label 3. I stamped the postmark in Antique Linen for a subtle appearance. Some more beautiful flowers were added and can be found in the Inspired By Stamping store. I am not only smitten with the stamps, but I am totally in love with these flowers. So perfect for embellishing a pretty card! 
I found further inspiration for my card using the Mojo Monday Sketch. 
I am also joining in Papercraft Star - Use a stamp and
Young Crafter's Unite - No coloring allowed. 
Thank you for visiting me today. I would truly be honored if you went to the Inspired By Stamping blog today!
Hope your day is special!
~Tammy~
