Carolina Girl (Cely)
My dear mother has passed, but I would like some of my friends to know I'm thinking of them on Mother's Day.  They will probably get the beautiful, gorgeous flower cards from the children, but from one mother's prospective to another I thought this card would "reach their daily life"...haha

The image, Float yer Goat is from Doodle Pantry.  I plan to do more of the May Releases, but I had to reach into the "oldie but goodies" for this project. I plan to enter into several challenges listed below.

I made 7 cards using scraps and different fences except for background. As you know I LOVE dies, and one of my favorites is this grass by Impression Obsession.

A2, Stitching, copics for flowers, IO grass, Poppy Stamp fence, Joy flower, pop-ups for dimension,  Fiskars cloud punches
INSIDE of card

A2, same card different edging because I cut too small....haha, forgot to put highlights on ballons before taking pic

Challenges:
Cut It Up - Mother's Day (use dies and/or cutting machine)
As You Like It Challenge- Favorite Die
Trimmies Craft Challenge: Stitching
Crafters Cafe challenge: Mother's Day
Broken Box Stock: Mother's Day
