CR84FN49, Simon Says Stamp and CAS-ual Fridays 43

I just had to squeeze this card in for CR84FN (graphic below) since I loved the color combo so much!

I also coordinated this with the Simon Says Stamp challenge: Mother's Day and CAS-ual Fridays 43: For Sentimental Reasons (graphic below).

 (I'll try and get a better picture tomorrow or Sunday.)

I loved this patterned paper from American Crafts. (Me? Patterned paper?! I recently purged a bunch and organized the remaining so I can find things more easily... Wehoo!) I added some lace, a sentiment and some bling and voilĂ !

(A note to my mother who shares this blog: I will be creating several Mother's Day cards so you won't know which one you'll end up getting! ;)  )

Thanks for visiting!

Your inking is fabulous. It truly makes the design and I love the soft embossing in the background.

Wow, very cool card!! I love how you used the ink on the patterned paper at the bottom of the card. Love your work on the sentiment as well and the soft embossing on the background really sets it all off nicely. Thanks so much for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
