Sweet Stop Sketch 53 - Happy Mother's Day

Hi there! Happy Saturday! There's a new sketch up over at The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog.

This is my card with today's sketch. I started with a piece of American Crafts cardstock for my base. All of the patterned paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love collection. I actually got this 12x12 paper stack awhile back at Michael's for $4!

This cute digi is Home Tweet Home by Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I printed it out on Choice Buttercream cardstock, colored it with Copics, and cut it out with Classic Rectangle Nestabilities. I also typed up the "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment on my computer and printed it out. I cut it out with circle Nestabilities. I added a bow and some pearls to finish off my card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
