To the world.....

With Mother's Day around the corner I have been inspired to make some projects for all the special moms in my live.  I grabbed this wonderful sentiment from the "Mother's Love set" over at Shannon's Sentiments and framed it using my Nesties.  The sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and that fabby flower is made using a tutorial I found here.  Come over and join us on CDAC as Shannon's Sentiments is sponsoring the "embellishment challenge" and there is a great prize up for grabs!  Join us Saturday for our new challenge with inspiration from our new DT ladies!

Christy thanks so much for helping us celebrate our 100th sketch milestone at SSW. Your card is a beauty - the DP paper, layers, colors and distessing add up to such a lovely show of love for your mom. I admire your ability to take a sentiment as a focal image and make it so effective like you did here. I always have difficulty with that. The flower embellie is terrific too. Thanks for sharing this pretty card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!
All the best,
Sharon, SSW-DT
