Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day! I was treated to breakfast in bed this morning...Frosted Mini-Wheats, strawberries and a darling little rose cut from our rose bush out back...all served on a Wii weigh scale (apparently I don't own any trays. :) Now that my appetite has been satisfied, I've gone ahead and satisfied my crafty appetite with a card made for this week's Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoast. I chose this card here by Tracy MacDonald (aka TracyMac):

I used a beautifully scripted stamp I received from Della at  I Brake For Stamps called Nature. It fit perfectly with the elegance of the silk and the nature theme of the background paper. If you're interested in stamps from Della's store, enter Save10Andrea and you'll get 10% off of your purchase. The bow is 1.5" Champagne Silk Ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel. I folded a length in half and draped it over the Doily Lace panel, then made the bow and attached it to the ribbon. (That's the way you get it to stay straight.) I added a sweet vintage rose, which was inspired by Tracy's card, Vintage Roses. I kept the color scheme the same and included the rose and pearls. I changed up the theme from hers and I omitted the image.
Before I go, the Ribbon Carousel is having a sale through Monday, May 14th in honor of Mother's Day! Why not treat yourself to something YOU really want, yes?

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!
