Mother Card

 I had some time to play this weekend and made this card for some challenges.  



Some of the challenges wanted bling and sparkle.  So let's get to it!  I used a metallic sheet of card stock: DCWV Linen collection.  I hope you can see how the paper shimmers.  On to edging a chipboard circle with glue followed by USArtQuest Crystal Effects (fine glitter).  Then I highlighted the roses with my Sakura Gel Clear Star Pen.  Always hard to photograph this stuff so I hope you can see it in this close-up. Adding to the bling is my diamond crystal at the top.  

Spring time of course makes one think of Mother's Day and flowers in bloom.

For mother:   image from A Mother's Love collage sheet from Gecko Galz.

Flowers:  rose circle from For Mother's Day collage sheet by Heather Hudson for Gecko Galz
beautiful roses in the mother/daughter image

Ribbon and Lace:  This gorgeous scalloped seam binding is doing double duty as lace tied into a ribbon bow.

To complete the list, I used my Sizzix Frame, Fancy Rectangle die on a piece of card stock from DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl paper pack.


Here are the challenges I'm entering:
