A Mother's Day Card

Mother's Day is just around the corner.  I'm a little behind on getting my cards made but I have finished one!  I'm sharing this one today.  I couldn't wait to get the "Mother's Day" stamp when it was first released in Close To My Heart's Spring Summer Idea Book.  I actually started this card over a week ago and after playing around with ideas for a while I had to set it aside.  One of those lack of mojo days I guess.  But I came back to it last weekend and began to put it together.  I love using silhouette stamps. There is an elegance about them that really appeals to me.  I'm not sure I did this one justice but I do like the way the card turned out.

I used some paper from the Skylark (X7177B) paper pack.  For my Mother's Day sentiment I cut a shape from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and stamped the frame with one of the frames from the set - Frame Flair (D1546).   I used sparkles from the Sparkles Clear Assortment (Z1752), a flourish from the Sparkles Clear Flourishes - Small (Z1812) and added a resin flower from the Skylark Assortment (Z3000)

Here are the two stamp sets I used:
Frame Flair - D1546
Mother's Day (C1577)

I have one more card to complete before Sunday!  I'll share when I've finished.  

I'm entering this card into the following blog challenges:
