Fabulous Mother

Hiya friend!  Thank you for your sweet comments yesterday on my good news!  You all are so wonderful and I appreciate you mucho!  I seriously can't wait for you to see these stamps!  One more thing to add to that list that is a mile long, haha!  For today, I wanted to share a card I made for my mom using Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe.  Oh this paper is delicious and I now I am on a shabby card kick.  Hope you don't mind since it seems to change with the wind, or should I say, Ohio weather!!

I was inspired by my friend Cindy's card she did a few weeks back and used the LO losely for this. 
Layering some patterned paper on my card front after distressing it a bit with white ink, I stamped a little zigzag pattern on the seam in brown ink, which you can't see very well and ends up covered by my panel, but eh, it's there.

Cut a patterned paper panel and border punched a strip, adhering them together.  Sprayed a Tattered Angels Chipboard frame with green glimmer mist.  Layered a few Prima blooms together with a pretty brad, and layed that over a bow of twine.

Stamped my sentiment in Rich Cocoa ink and added a few pearls.

That is all for me today, I hope your day is fabulous!
