Bloggers Challenge-Mother's Day

inside of card:

This week’s Blogger’s Challenge is all about Mother’s Day! I just got the Close as a Memory set and wanted to use it right away. I think those flowers are so pretty! I needed some inspiration, so I went to splitcoaststampers.com. I found a great card by atsamom and was on my way!

I sent my mom and Todd’s (my hubby’s) mom this card along with a pack of cards. My mom stamps, but still loves to get the cards to send and for inspiration!

Here’s what I used:

stamp sets: Close as a Memory, Holidays and Wishes, All Year Cheer II (retired)

card stock: Not Quite Nave, Baja Breeze, Whisper White

ink: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze

accessories: organza ribbon, stamping sponge, stampin’ dimensionals, tag corner punch, Big Shot, Top Note die

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mother’s out there!

Love this stamp set - have always coloured it up, never used it in a monochramatic scheme, will have to now.

Great card for this week's challenge!
