Blossoms for Mother



Spring is finally here, and my cards I made the past few days have really reflected it, with all the flowers and bright spring colors. 
I have a craft sale coming up next weekend, and I wanted to make some Mothers Day cards.  I came up with this one late last night, and I am really pleased with how nice it turned out.  I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set, with the matching blossom punch, which is so quick and easy.  The paper comes from Berry Blossoms DSP (retired), and then I crimped a piece of Lucky Limeade CS down the side.    I love the mix of textures with the dotted embossed background. The "mother" comes from Amazing Family stamp set.
I got the idea for the layout from Fab Friday's Challenge 17, and the idea for crimping came from Little Red Wagon Challenge #182 to "Crimp My Style" this week.  The Pink Elephant Challenge 196 was to "Lift It", and I got my inspiration from a card made by Yvette Ashe (I was unable to find the original posting). 
Hope you enjoy this lovely weekend.
