Happy Mother's Day

Where does the time go?  Since Easter, I've been busy on a number of fronts and I have had only a bit of time for cardmaking.  

Here is the card that I created for my dear Mom for the special day dedicated to all wonderful mothers.    I truly cherish my mother and unfortunately we could not be together on Mother's Day but I will see her very soon. 

I chose a simple design using my new Elegant Edges cartridge.  I stamped the Happy Mother's Day with Tim Holtz fire brick red ink and used embossing powder for the first time.  I added a few embellishments including the flowers, butterfly and button brads.  The lace trim is something that I had in my stash from my mother-in-law and I thought it would be a nice addition to this card.  The paper is K & Company Classic K McKenna Designer Paper mounted on white cardstock. 

I'll be back soon with more updates!
