Bloom Happy Flower Card...

Hello there, wonderful Crafters and to all the Mommies out there like me, "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!"  Once again, it's been a busy week but I made this card last night and so glad I was able to finish.  The image is from one of my favorite artists, Mo Manning, which I colored many months ago...I was so excited to color her with my ProMarker and Prismacolor Markers but didn't have time to make up a card (oh, the story of my life!) LOL.  Finally, she's out and about and what a "cutie" she turned out.  I designed my own DP's by using Kraft CS and stamped with my favorite rubber/cling and clear stamps.  The base panel was stamped with a flower background from Stampendous and so as the round sentiments except for one that has "hello" which came from Heidi Grace.  I used my Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge for the first time (I tell you, I am totally loving this Cart) to cut the scallop-sunflower shaped panel (I am truly amazed!).  I also die-cut a circle where I stamped a flower border (from Fiskars) across several times and attached it to the scallop panel. I added some ribbon, different kinds of gems, subtle glitters on center of flowers, placed a button at one of my handmade crochet flowers (I sell those at MY ETSY store), stitching in and out of the Card and tadah...fresh card for y'all!  Hope you enjoy the pics...This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    DP2 Challenge featuring "Tickle my Funny Bone"

BLOOM HAPPY FLOWER CARD WITH ENVELOPE-BOX:

So, how are you all planning to celebrate this wonderful Mom's Day?  My hubby usually takes me to eat elsewhere but my special request is barbecue at home...I want it simple and just enjoy a wonderful moment with my family.  I am grateful to the Lord Jesus for loving me unconditionally.  Knowing that makes me face each day with excitement and hope.  How am I going to live without Him?  He's A-awesome!  Looking forward to see your comments and if you totally enjoy my work, sign-up as a follower.  Just to let you know that we will be starting our very first Challenge at MayzyArt next week (It's my first DT Challenge and I'm so excited) so, watch out for it!  Hugs!
