Cart of Love..........Mothers Day Card

I am so honored that I was asked to be on the design team at Crafty Creations Challenges.  This is my first week on the design team and this week our hostess is Bernie at Crafty Be  blog, our sponsor is The Stamping Boutique where you will find some fabulous images.  I chose the "Flower Cart" image to make a Mother's Day card as this is the theme this week.
I printed the image on Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock and colored it using a combination of Copic markers and ProMarkers.  My Copic marker collection is very small, but I have all the ProMarkers colors so I used both.    I hope to expand my Copics as time goes on and as the budget allows (or when I stop buying other things LOL).  I was very unhappy with the way the umbrella came out, but once I placed it on the bright green mat paper, that I pinched the corners with a Fiskars punch I was quite pleased.   The salmon colored background paper is from DCWV Flower Shower stack.  The Happy Mothers Day I cut from the Cricut cartridge Holiday Cakes, I love the cake cartridges for sentiments.  I actually mounted the sentiment with removable adhesive as I am not sure I will leave it as a Mothers Day card.  My Mom was here and saw it so I guess I will need to make another one.  I think it would make a great get well card as it is so bright and cheery.

Well thanks so much for stopping by and I would love to hear what you think of my card.  Be sure you check out the Crafty Creations Challenges, there is a new challenge every Wednesday, I look forward to being on this Design Team!
