BLOGGERS CHALLENGE Floral Mother's Day

Hello Everyone -
The past few weeks, I haven't had a lot of time to stamp for fun and work on challenges, that I normally enjoy. Since we Home School, we have had lots of opportunities to play with friends, go on extra field trips and we are wrapping up several of the clubs and activities we have participated in...

Today, I took some time to enjoy stamping for fun and participate in FEW challenges! The first two challenges I participated in are the BLOGGERS CHALLENGE and Our Daily Bread Designs challenge to make a Mother's Day Card. You can see the ODBD challenge HERE... The next challenge I participated in was Splitcoast Stampers Featured Stamper Challenge #169 - this honor went to the very talented Eliotstamps aka Michelle! The card I chose to case is HERE... I made a few changes that are listed here:

1. Colors and cardstock
2. Stamp Set and punches
3. I added organdy ribbon

Here is a close up...

Here are a few more details:
Stamp Set: Our Daily Bread Designs Sing to the Lord, Words by SU
Cardstock: Co'ordinations, Basic Grey, Neenah #80 White
Accessories: Scallop Punch, 1 3/8 & 1 1/2 circle punch, Xyron, Glitter, Dimensionals, Martha Stewart Punch, Burgundy Organdy
