SUOC17 Mother's Day

Welcome to another challenge from SU Only Challenges! Today we are making Mother's Day cards. I was under the weather yesterday, and my post is late. I went to lay down at 4pm yesterday, and never got back up. Sorry! And I've got to take Little J to an Easter egg hunt this morning. Rushing, rushing...

I finally broke down and purchased the Easter Blossoms set. Don't forget this set is only available through April 3o! And I love this Springtime Vintage paper. Why haven't I used it more? It reminds me of my maternal grandmother.

This card is based on this week's Mojo Monday.

A shot of my hurried watercoloring. And boy was my bow giving me trouble! Start to finish, 1-1/2 hours. What do you think?

Stamps: Easter Blossoms, Something to Celebrate; Paper: Rose Red, Crumb Cake, Baja Breese, Very Vanilla, Springtime Vintage DSP; Ink: Rose Red, Black Stazon, Early Espresso marker; Accessories: Aquapainter, Baja Breeze seam binding, 3" Circle die, Petal Cone die, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.

Thanks for stopping by!
