Happy Mother's Day

I managed to emerge from my bed and create a card this morning!

My kids and I have been sick all week, so this weekend I'll be cleaning, disinfecting, doing laundry and restocking tissues!

I wanted to play along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps CASE competition before the time ran out. Check here for details and to see the entries.

I chose to CASE Belinda's lovely card. Here it is:



So pretty! I created a card that also had a label 14 cut-out and I also stamped a musical background behind the focal image.

The flower basket comes from WMS's Spring Baskets. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the dots. The cardstock is Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz and Stamper's Select. The velvet trim comes from American Craft. Everything was popped up with foam tape.

Thanks for looking!
Melissa

ooh, love this card. So bright and cheery not to mention a darn clever CASE. The flowers look as if they could hop right off that card in all their glory for me to smell them. So pretty.
