A Card in Under Ten

Hello and Welcome!

So glad you are here today, we have a brand new challenge starting at The Squirrel and The Fox and it's Mother's Day. It's time to celebrate mothers everywhere and I made this card for my mom. There are no embellishments on it for a reason, she has Alzheimer's and it is not safe to include them. The beautiful tulip wreath image is by our current sponsor, Doodle Pantry, and it's pre-colored. Since the work of coloring was done for me I was able to put this card together in ten minutes.

This card came together in a snap by using scraps including the punched border. Dusty Concord distress ink added color to the outside of the wreath and a purple gel pen created my faux stitches. Some twine was secured to the back and I stamped I love you on the front and used a Happy Mother's Day sentiment on the inside. I'll be spending Mother's Day weekend with my mom and enjoying some quality time with her. She's the last living parent between my husband and I so we both felt it was important to be with her this year. Gratefully, she still knows who we are and that's such a blessing. 

Prize is a $10.00 gift certificate to the online store.

Thank You Doodle Pantry for supplying the DT with images to create with!

Thanks for looking today, please pay my teamies a visit to check out their creations using digital images from the Doodle Pantry. I hope you'll join us for our Mother's Day challenge and I'd also like to congratulate the Winner and Top 3 of our previous challenge.

It's a beautiful pre-colored image and it's so decorative, so your card doesn't need any embellishments. It's a pretty, clean design!

Wow, this is so feminine and the colors are so beautiful! Lovely and I like how you faux stitched the edges and that MS border is a wonderful color and makes the whole image 'pop'.
