Happy Mother's Day!!

Yay! I finally get a morning to myself.. of course it's only a couple of hours than I have to start working on some specialty theatre props for a local dinner theatre I occasionally work for.

I wanted to share the Mother's Day card I made for my Mother-in-law. She is a lovely, beautiful, Italian Woman who is a joy to sit and chat with. She loves her time in the garden and always has perfectly manicured flowers and veggies. So, I wanted to reflect that.

The torn piece of Polka Dot paper is by K&Company.. the ruffled flower is two sided paper (Ducks in a Row: Pat a Cake) by October Afternoon. I had a piece of wired ribbon in a scrap heap and bunched it up.  Lot's of edge inking going on..


 The butterflies were punched, glittered and layered.


I cut the tag on my Cricut using Fabulous Finds and popped it up on a couple of foam dots.

I decided at the last minute (ok, 20 minutes ago) I wanted a small flower on the inside and didn't want to turn on the Cricut.
So, I was going through my punches when a light bulb went on!
My small Hidden Mickey was to be reborn as a flower. I punched out 4 and overlapped them into this cute little flower. 



Magnifico!


Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms in the world!

I'm submitting this design to the Make it Monday linky party, drop over and join the fun!
