Mother's Day Card

This is the card that I made for my mom for Mother's Day. I love the way it turned out!


I used My Mind's Eye patterned paper for the card front. I added some of the lace that I just got from a garage sale over the paper seam. I made the "Happy Mother's Day Mom!" on the computer, and then I cut a scalloped mat for the sentiment with my Nestabilities. I added one of Emily's gorgeous crocheted flowers, and I used a Making Memories brad for the flower center. I really like the way this turned out, and I know my mom is going to love it!

I keep forgetting to mention that you should check out Judy's site. She is giving away an amazing "Scrapbooking Diva" bag that she made. Go leave her a comment and tell her that Carol sent you!

I hope you have a GREAT day, and thanks for stopping by!!

The card is beautiful. I hadn't thought about using lace on cards and I have tons of it.

Thanks for the mention of my blog candy in your post. You need to check out the tee shirt that I just did for myself.
