Happy Mother's Day

Good Morning! Its another rainy spring day here in virgina. On the bright side it is great card making weather. Today I made a card for my wonderful mom. I started off with a sketch from papertake weekly. I used stampin up cardstock and then layered a pieced of Melissa Frances DP. I layered one strip of pink gingham paper and then on the green stampin up Dp I used an impression obsession floral stamp for the background image. I layered one more strip of pink gingham with hero arts ivory lace on top and then used my bigshot and my nestabilities labels 10 for the die cut. I stamped "mom" from the stampin up set called messages for mom. I bought this set last year and forgot to use it. So I was determined to get it out and get some ink on it this year.  I popped up the die cut with scotch foam. I placed a glue dot in the left hand corner and added 3 pink roses, love those. I added fruit punch stickles to my floral image and the sentiment is from inkindinkado. I disteressed all my pieces lightly with memento rich cocoa ink. I am entering this card in a few challenges:
