BC150 - Happy Mother's Day

Happy Friday!  I haven't felt well this week so stamping was pretty much on the back burner (see post below for explanation).  I did however want to give my mom a Mother's Day card and since the Blogger Challenge theme this week was none other then Mother's Day cards I managed to come up with a card I think she'll really like.  I started with picking out my patterned paper, (My Minds Eye - Bloom and Grow series). Then I picked out a layout that I liked and went from there.  The only stamping on my card is the sentiment on the outside and the inside.  I used papers, punches and embellishments to create this card.
Details: Card Stock: Bermuda Bay and Whisper White.             Designer paper, My Minds Eye. Punches, 3 Flower Punch, XL2 Step-Bird Punch (SU), Layered Arches (MS) Labels 8 Nestabilitie Dies, Paper Piercing Tool, Brads (Queen and Co.), Ribbon (Ellen Hutson) and Foam Mounting Tape.
I hope all of you Mother's out there have a truly wonderful Mother's Day weekend.
Don't forget to check out the other BC members blogs to view their Mother's Day creations.
