Mom

I made this card to enter in the Papertrey Ink Guest Star Stamper contest using last month's releases. I created the patterned paper by stamping Polka Dot Basics first on white cardstock. Then, I added a flower from Little Lady in the centers of each of the circles. I stamped the outline from one of the stamps in Just Hatched and used the Trajan Monogram set to add the word 'Mom' to the middle. I cut out my oval and added a mat using an oval nestability die. Then, I added ribbon to my card and the sentiment. The sentiment is pop dotted up. I cut out more flowers from Little Lady, added dew drops, and pop dotted them up as well. Then, I made the inside liner and stamped more flowers in the corner. I like how it turned out. Simple and classic. I'm hoping to get some scrapbooking done today. I haven't made any pages in a while and I miss it.
