Casing Myself



Short and sweet today as it's a busy weekend coming up.  I decided to case myself and make a Mother's Day card.  My original card using an MFT sketch is here.  Swapped out the butterflies for a flower, changed the DP and added some ribbon.  Nice and easy :)

Think the hardest part of the weekend will be having to patiently wait for my new Verve to arrive LOL!  Can't wait to create with it next week :)  Have a fabulous weekend!

 

What's In It?
Stamps: Amuse, Bloom and Grow (Verve) 
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, Rose Romance, Pretty in Pink, Country Drive (Echo Park) 
Ink: Black, VersaMark 
Accessories:  Scalloped Circle and Circle Nesties, Martha Stewart Border Punch, PTI Flower Die, Verve Leaf Die, Crimper, Magenta Grosgrain Ribbon, Button, Twine, Glue Dot, Dimensionals
