Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!
Here in Middle Tennessee it has been a beautiful day!  Today my girls are doing one of my most dreaded chores for me..... going to the Grocery!  The past week has been very busy and I never had a chance to go.  Yesterday we drove to Kentucky to spend the day with my hubby's mother so Saturday grocery shopping was out.  That left today - and what Mother wants to go to the grocery on Mother's Day?!!  Certainly not me!   So, I gave them a list and sent them on their way.  awww... so nice.

I've still got to run by and see my mom. They've been gone this weekend visiting my grandma so that gave me an extra day to work on a card for my Mother.  My mom spends many hours working in her back yard and it is beautiful! So any card I usually create for my mom HAS to have flowers on it!

Here is a picture of my mom and my sisters in her backyard.

Here is the card I created

For this card I cut a large tag with the out of the Dream Pop cardstock with a 'lattice' resist design on it.  Then I pulled out one of my past favorite Stamps of the Month from May 2012 - Friendship Bouquet (no longer available).  I stamped the flowers with Slate pigment ink and then used Clear Detail Embossing to emboss.  The flowers are colored with Honey and Buttercup inks using a blending pen technique.   The center of the flowers are filled Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel.  Close To My Heart's bronze glitter paper makes an easy cut for my "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment with my Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  I layered the flowers, sentiment and ribbon on top of a White Daisy image also cut with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.
