CAS Mother's Day Card

I loved this sketch so much that I had to use it again, this time to add to my Mother's Day card collection.

Since my last card using this fabulous sketch used butterflies and I needed another Mother's Day card, I decided to go with flowers this time round (surprise, surprise LOL!).  However, my wide scallop punch jammed on me when I was using it today - ugh!!  Off to the freezer it went and after a five minute time out in there, it was good to go again.  I believe the cause of the jam was using some card stock that was on the thin side so the punch bent the paper rather than cutting through it - at least that is what I'm hoping!  Note to self:  don't use this punch with thin card stock! 

Out came my Stampin' Up! five petal flower punch and my Martha Stewart leaf and butterfly punches.  After a bit of arranging (I still have issues with placing leaves around flowers), it was basically done.  Some half pearls and ribbon finished things off and voila, a clean and simple Mother's Day card to go :D

Have a fabulous day!
