Mother's Day at ABC Challenges

The challenge this week at ABC Challenges is Mother's Day Cards.

Pop on over to the blog and see the gorgeous Design Team Mother's Day cards.  We look forward to seeing your cards entered in the challenge!

I had a little inspiration for this card - I had a look through the Waltzingmouse Stamps CASE competition cards and I just loved the soft feel of this card by Meredith MacRitchie, especially the soft orange.

I started by stamping a houndstooth background with Hero Arts Soft sand, then used a Waltzingmouse Stamps stamp with Hero Arts Poppy ink.  A Spellbinders edge die was used to cut one side of the card and faux silk ribbon and pearl embellishments from The Ribbon Girl finished off the card, together with a computer made sentiment.

I'd like to enter this into:
