Glitter n Sparkle DT - Mother's Day

Hello, everyone.  Can you believe it's Sunday already!  Where did the weekend go? Sunday means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  Our theme this week is Mother's Day.  No kitty image for me this week LOL.  Actually I chose a Digi Darla's image from my own personal library; it's called "Flower Paper Medley."  What a gorgeous image - I had so much fun colouring this one with my Prismacolor pencils.  I really miss Digi Darla's - they had some fabulous images. 

Here are the other supplies I used to make this card:
  • Dies: Butterflies (Elizabeth Craft, Memory Box)
  • Embossing folder: Couture Creations One World
  • Accents:  Ribbon, lace, pearls (dollar store), charm (stash)
  • Cardstock:  Staples, Recollections
  • Sentiment:  Computer-generated
  • Bow maker:  Craft-Dee BowZ

I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Mother's Day challenge.  We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs this week, thanks to our generous sponsors:
Bunny Zoe's - $10 gift certificate
Digi Darla's - selection of images
Fred She Said - $10 gift certificate
The Stamping Chef - 3 images
