Happy Mother's Day...

Have you guys noticed I seem to be on a craft roll these days??? hahaha I have had more crafty time in the last week than in the whole month before, and I'm lovin' it. I got the kids off to school yesterday morning and couldn't wait to get busy! I wanted to play along in this week's JustRite Inspiration Challenge and LOVED the new Card Patterns sketch for the week. So, why not combine the challenges, right? Here's the JustRite Inspiration...

You can use either the picture or the colors or both as your inspiration. The Copic colors were given simply as a reference. And here's the Card Patterns Sketch...

and my card...

As you can see, I stayed right on the sketch. I love my Big Shot Pro machine and this sketch was perfect for my A6 Scallop Card Die. After cutting my card base, I stamped my image using JustRite's Beautiful Blossoms Oval Original Ribbed stamp set and colored it with my Copics. Using the colors from the picture as my inspiration, I colored my image with Y21, YR65, YR68 and YG61 to and B21 to airbrush around the image after cutting it with my Spellbinders Oval Nesties. For the sentiment, I used the new Happy Everything Card Making Kit and airbrushed it to match after cutting and embossing it. To accent the image I cut a piece of SU! Apricot Appeal using my Spellbinders Scallop Oval Nesties. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
