Let's Craft and Create Challenge #134: Anything Goes or Mother's Day

There's another fun challenge over on Let's Craft and Create. We hope you'll join in on the fun of challenge #134 by creating a Mother's Day card or create an entry for our Anything Goes option.

I've opted to create a Mother's Day card.

I used a combination of branded (leafy branches by Memory Box) and unbranded (flowers and fancy rectangle) dies to create this card.

I think you can see in this photo that I've raised up my center oval die cut (it came with the fancy rectangle) with double-sided foam tape. It adds such nice dimension to my card. Before I did that, though, I heat embossed my Mother's Day sentiment.

My flower layers were cut from white cardstock--I'm not sure why it seems to have a bluish tinge in the photos.  I lightly inked the interiors of each layer of petals, did a bit of shaping with a flower molding tool, and then glued the layers together. I debated on what to use for my flower center and finally settled on a simple pink flat-backed gem.

This sentiment is from an unbranded clear stamp set, and I though it would be perfect for this Mother's Day card. I will be sending this to one of my aunts, and I sure hope they like it!

Now we'd love to have you join in this fun challenge (who doesn't like to make Mother's Day cards?) and post your entry here. The Design Team has some fantastic creations to inspire you and help spark your creativity, so be sure to check them out. Who knows, you may even win the prize being offered this month!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
