Wonderful Mother + challenges

It's Friday... yeah... and a beautiful one ,at that, here in Ohio ! It's been another crazy busy week so have had very limited time in the craft room .

I wanted to post the card I made for my dear MIL whom I adore. Since she lives in California, it had to be flat and clean and simple so here it is . I'm also including this is SSCC and ODBD challenges this week .

I have used dp from Basic Grey's "Kioshi" pack... I wanted that bouquet of flowers to be the focal point of the card. I have used Liquid Pearls and Stardust Stickles on the flowers and sadly my poor photo doesn't show the sparkle hardly at all ... but IRL it is there so imagine a little , will you ! :)
The sentiment is from Stampin Up and was stamped , colored in with a light Copic and cut out with a Labels Six nestie. Small flat gemstones and ribbon and a small bow and OH , yes ... do you see the STITCHING ??? That was made with my new Janome Sew Mini from hubby...oh, what a keeper ! I still have lots of practicing to do since I am NOT a sew-er ... but I do love the look ! And there you have it !

I'm off to garden and then some more crafting so I do hope to have another post for you in the next day or so. Have a great Friday wherever you are !

Hugs !

So very pretty and you fit in so much detail considering you had to keep it one layer for easier mailing. Great job with the stitching I think! Thanks for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week.
