This card is a Mother's Day card, but could be changed to suit many other occasions.
Once again, I used one of my sister's dies - Park Bench by Spellbinders - as my focal point. I added the decorative border on the left (Cuttlebug Ornamental Iron die) and some tulips, which are a border cut from the "A Walk in my Garden" cartridge.
I think this little bench is so cute. I cut it out in a couple different colors of cardstock, but I really like it best in black. I think it looks like a wrought iron bench.
I'm entering this card into Challenge #251 - May Flowers over on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.
Do you notice that yellowish cast at the bottom of my photo? That's the reflection from the little wooden stand that my card is sitting on. I would have retaken these photos, except this card had already been sent by the time I realized this problem. Lesson learned: Cover this little stand with something white!
I still have a couple of Mother's Day cards to share this week. Even though this holiday has come and gone, I think the designs of Mother's Day cards are easily used for birthdays, thinking of you and other purposes.
Did you have a nice Mother's Day? My day was lovely. I spoke by phone to my three kids who live in other parts of the country and spent some time at my daughter's home who lives blocks from me. I also had the chance to go to the plant store and buy some flowers for my planters and flower beds. Now I just need to get them all planted!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
