My First Blogger's Challenge

I'm so excited to be posting my first card for Blogger's Challenge. The challenge this week was to make a Mother's Day card and since I had not made my mom's card yet, this was the perfect incentive to get moving.

My mom is a phenomenal gardener and two of her favorite things, flowers and teddy bears, prompted me to buy this stamp from Darcie a few year's ago. I colored it with Copic Markers and then cut it out and attached it to the card with dimensionals. I also stamped a second flower and placed it on dimensionals as well. The sentiment stamp is from Stampendous and the gorgeous PP is from my Chatterbox stash. For a finishing touch I added ribbon that I just received from a ribbon share organized by Jody over at Confessions of a Ribbon Addict. Finally, I added a bit of yellow Stickles to the flower's center.

Be sure to check out all the other cards made for this challenge by clicking on the link on the right sidebar.

See you when I return from Disneyland!





It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Chatterbox
Stamps: Darcie, Stampendous
Ink: Palette, Noir Black
Accessories: Ribbon, foam squares, Stickles
Tools: Copic Markers, Ticket punch
