I Love Being Your Mom!

Mother's Day is fast approaching...  The Challenge at Perfect Sentiments this week is Handmade Flowers for Mom.  Since my Mom died in 2005, and my Grandmother's long before that, I wasn't quite sure what sentiment I wanted to use until I saw this sentiment in the Pure Innocence set Cute-a-tude.  I couldn't wait to make cards for my kids (now adults...)!  So my "Twist" to the Challenge is Handmade Flowers FROM Mom!!  I used the Sketch from the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge. 

I chose paper from the 6x6 Paper Pack "Meadow Lark" from Prima.  The flower was cur on my Cricut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  I used organza ribbon below the flower and attached it with a brad topped off with a pearl opaque.  The sentiment is stamped with Close to My Heart Petal ink and three pearl opaques in the top right corner finish off the card.

I Love Being Your Mom!!!
