Happy Mother's Day

Challenge #232

Theme: Anything Goes with Women

Sponsor: StitchyBear Digi Outlet


Sounds like a great theme for a challenge, doesn't it? I can visualize seeing all kinds of GREAT cards, featuring gorgeous women, activities women enjoy doing, etc.

Now, before I show you my card, let me tell you a bit about how this design team works. Each challenge the DT members are assigned one of the StitchyBear creators and we can choose any image from that creator's collection to use for the challenge. For this challenge I was given "Floppy Latte" and could choose any image from there. WOW! There were some GREAT images to choose from! And truthfully, a lot of them fit the "Women" theme better than the one I chose, but I fell in love with "Dandy Flower" and just had to choose it. So I paired it with a Mother's Day sentiment... and everyone knows that Mother's Day is all about women. ;)

Okay, I don't mean to brag, but I love the way this card turned out! (I know... sounds like bragging, doesn't it? But so often I feel dissatisfied with the cards I've made, and I have even been known to grumble about my creation here on my blog, so today, I decided to let you know I am happy with the card I made.)

But lest you think I've  gotten a little too carried away with the bragging, I will tell you I do NOT like the inside of the card...

I hope you'll participate in the Anything Goes with Women Challenge!

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:

Shazaaam! Of course you can brag... the card is gorgeous and I love that flower and how you've coloured it. Those green pearls in the yellow really pull it all together and look so good placed there.
It's a great card!
