Happy Mother's Day

I can't believe Mother's Day is already approaching. I used Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #4 for the colors to get cracking on my Mom's card.

I also recently bought my first Papertrey Ink stamps sets....finally! I had to use Dawn's Damask Designs on this card. I don't have a distressing tool, but I used my fingernails on the circles. I also braided the ribbon like Kristina did for a recent Two Peas class.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: sentiment (SU!), Damask Designs (PTI)
Paper: card base already embossed with polka dots, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky
Tools: Martha Stewart Circle Cutter
Other: Chocolate Chip ribbon, pearls (Martha Stewart), foam tape
