Bee Mothers Day Card




Hello everyone! Is everyone ready for the big wedding tomorrow? I am DVRing it so I don't have to get up at 4 a.m. I can't wait to see what her dress will look like. Well on to my card.

I made this card for several challenges. I cut the bee from Paisley at 3 inches. The sentiment mats were cut from Once Upon A Princess starting at 2 inches and then gradually going up. I stamped the sentiment and did some faux stitching around the outer mat. The mat, bee, and flower are all pop dotted. To finish I added a ribbon. These are the challenges that I am entering this card into:

1. Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday challenge- use Paisley

2. Fantabulous Cricut- Mothers Day and must say the word MOM on it.

3. Scrapbookaholic By Abby- Mothers with faux stitching

4. Die Cuttin Diva's- Mothers Day

Very pretty card! I love the colors and the paper. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Scrappy Moms Stamps!

PS - I don't have a DVR, I know I'm in the dark ages, so I will have to watch "re-runs"! LOL
