happy mother's day

So I made this for Cricut Cardz challenge but missed the deadline by 45 minutes!!  GRRRR!!

Oh well, I will still need this card, but I can't say for sure who will get it.  My mother is probably my biggest fan and most loyal reader!  HI MOM!! 

The challenge was to make a Mother's Day card!  I did veer from my ABC cricut challenge, but I DID use a new PTI stamp set (another challenge of mine):  Bitty Background Blocks.  This is such a great versatile set!  I used it on the middle of the flower.

edit:  I was contacted and told that my card qualifies for a Mother's Day challenge over on Hand Stamped Sentiment blog! Thank you Genny! 

Here's what I came up with:

Flower and leaves were cut at 2 1/2" from Picturesque Cartridge
I LOVE this cartridge!
You can check it out here:  Picturesque Cartridge

Card Base: SU  Pear Pizzazz 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   DCWV The Stack 4" X 5 1/4"   Melon Mambo 4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Crushed Curry,  Always Artichoke
Ink: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry
Stamps:  SU Teeny Tiny Wishes, PTI Bitty Background Blocks
Accessories:  Crushed Curry ribbon, Cuttlebug & Floral Screen embossing folder, SU window punches, Pearls, Cricut & Picturesque Cartridge
