Grateful there's You, Mom {PP194}

This week's challenge at The Paper Players is hosted by the ever-fabulous Jaydee..and what a timely challenge it is!  
Good thing too because I still had one very important Mother's Day card to make!  I found this great sketch over at Cardabilities--I'm really liking their sketches--and was totally inspired!

I wanted to use the retiring single stamp, Beautifully Baroque, because it is so elegant and pretty....just like my Mom!  Aww, it's true! She loves all shades of blue so I stamped it in Coastal Cabana on Pool Party cardstock using my Stamp-a-ma-Jig to line up a second image at the bottom.  Next, I layered a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe DSP cut with the Banner Framelits.
A scrunched up Tea Doily was spritzed with some homemade Champagne Shimmer Mist for and layered behind a Chalk Talk tag embossed with white onto Baked Brown Sugar.  I am so sad the Itty Bitty Punch Pack set is retiring.  I love this bitty flower--it always makes the perfect little accent especially with a pearl center!
Be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the Design Team is sharing today in celebration of Mothers, everywhere!  We hope that you will join us before the challenge closes on Friday, May 9th at Noon (PST).  Thanks for stopping by today, friends!

Oh Nance, your Mom is going to love this! Was she given strict instructions to not go on your blog today? So many sweet details. Love the scrunched up doily, the ruffled ribbon and the tiny gold flowers with pearls. The chalk talk set looks great embossed in white, too. Fabulous!

I am like your mom, I like blue too! I love what you did with these pretty images....that doily is a perfect background, and I love that ruffled ribbon! Sweet!

Nance this is beautiful and I know your mom will just love it.
The itty bitty bloom is so cute and I always love it with a pearl center. Too cute.

Nance, this is gorgeous and your mom will love it! I never purchased the Beautifully Baroque stamp and you kind of make me sorry I didn't you've done such a beautiful job with it here. I love the ruffled doily. The inside is so pretty too!

Nance, I love the blue and pink combo with the touch of yellow. The card is soft, and feminine and a little touch of fabulous vintage. Gorgeous take on the sketch, too!
I know your Mom will love it
