Garden Wagon

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

It's Mother's Day here in the US and a different day for me. I am usually with my son and his family celebrating but not this year. With the stay at home order that is in effect here in PA, I had to be happy with a phone call.  But, I am not going to stress over it. I know that I am loved and the current situation is out of my control. 

So I am sending Happy Mother's Day wishes to all of you out there. I hope your day is a blessed one no matter what you are doing. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created using the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #788. Jeanne was our hostess and she chose Lemon-Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Powder Pink for her color trio. 
lemon lime twist, berry burst, powder pink
My card is using a new die from CottageCutz - Mouse with Garden Wagon. I cut the flowers and pots in the challenge colors. Sponged the lemon-lime twist cardstock with the same color ink to get a color gradient.

I decided to cut the wagon in a black striped designer paper. I didn't like it in either the berry or lemon-lime color.

The little mouse is cut in smoky slate (neutral) cardstock and I sponged in the same color ink. An afterthought - I maybe should have cut it in a shade of brown. He is a little field mouse after all not a rat (lol)!!

For the background of the image panel, I used a cloud stencil and sponged some clouds in spun sugar distress ink. It's a great match for powder pink. The designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "fresh florals" collection.

To finish off my card, I scattered a few berry burst glitter enamel dots. This card made it's way to one of my daughter-in-laws for Mother's Day.
