Happy Mother's Day

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today, on the Great Impressions Stamps Blog we have a brand new challenge for April. The theme is a fun one using dots on our creations. I love using designer paper with polka dots.

Hope you can play along with us. You may be our top pix or even win a $20 Gift certificate to the online store.

For my sample card, I decided to make a Mother's Day card. I wanted it to be bright and feminine so I chose melon mambo and lucky limeade card stocks.

My sentiment is the Great Impressions Stamp "Happy Mother's Day" - B190.  I love the elegant font on this stamp. It works so well with my paper and layout.

My patterned paper is from Stampin-Up's cheerful treat collection. I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a Cheery Lynn Designs flourish die.

My layout comes from the de-constructed sketch #95.  This is a fun sketch to use several designer papers and my polka dot papers.

Well that's it for me for today. So until next time..........God bless.

I am also entering:
1.  613 Avenue Create has anything goes with spring fever. I used lots of bright colors plus a Mother's Day theme.
2. Cupcake Inspirations has a photo inspiration. My card fit right in with all the polka dots.
3. Stamping Sensations has a special occasions challenge.
4. Crafty Catz has an anything goes challenge.
