My Sheri Crafts Ch. 84 April Showers Bring May Flowers to Mom

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Yay! It is Saturday and time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Challenge 84 is April Showers Bring May Flowers to Mom! Time to celebrate those special ladies in our lives! We are asked to create a Mother's Day card/project and add flowers!

My card is 5"x 7" white cardstock. Designer papers are K&Company Sweet Nectar Speciality Paper. I was inspired by a sketch from PageMaps June 2008.

Cricut cartridges:
Flower Shoppe - Page 17. The flower is called sunflower but I thought it would accent the flower in top left corner of the paper. I used image 1, 2, and 4 each cut at 3". Page 22 -- Mum leaf cut 1.5". I used a water spritz and crunched the flower cuts to make the flower.
Florals Embellished - Page 51 - Phrase Mom cut at 1".

Other supplies include Offray yellow ribbon, Recollections gemstone, and inking.

Be sure to stop by My Sheri Crafts and see all the gorgeous projects for Moms that our guest designer and talented design team have created for your inspiration. We appreciate your visits and comments at our individual blogs! Now it is your turn to make a Mother's Day project--remember to add flowers!
