Thinking Of You Mom

Hello Everyone!

So glad you stopped back in to see me. Been getting busy outside with the weather getting nice out. Getting ready to plant some flowers and lots of tomatoes. In the fall of the year I can everything I can get my hands on. It's work but yet it relaxes me and I like eating what I can much better than what you buy in the store.
Anyhow let's get on with the card. She is so sweet.
Seen this digi and just had to have it.  I want all of them. LOL Thought she would be so much fun to color and she was. So let me tell you how this card went together...

Base card, cut white cardstock 12 x 6 and score at 6". Cut black cardstock 5 3/4 x 5 3/4. Cut black and white checker paper 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and adhere those three together. Cut a piece of lace 5 1/2" long and adhere near bottom of card. With the Decorative Butterfly Corner Die  from Heartfelt Creations cut 2 using glossy black cardstock, one for the upper left corner and the other for the bottom right corner and adhere. With Labels Seventeen Die, center die on digi and cut. Turn die over on its flat side and draw around it for skinny frame around the white frame and adhere both frames. Color with copic's. Added a little bit of Stickles to the ribbon in her hair. Cut one Leaf Flourish from BossKut on green glitter cardstock. Add some dimensionals under label and place over butterfly die. Adhere leaf flourish half on, half off of frame. Place flowers around left side bottom. Added 3 rhinestones in upper right corner for a little more bling. Can't ever have enough bling can we!!!
