Another Mother's Day card

I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and that huge turquoise space is driving me crazy! Lol. At Sweet Stampin' Challenge they wanted us to try something new. I found directions for this paper punched flower and thought it looked fun so I tried it. If you are interested, the instructions are here. The Mother's Day sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps. It is part of a clear stamp set called Sentimental Flowers. The layout for this card came from Sweet Stop Challenge.
At Let's Ink It Up they wanted to see embellishments this week. These challenges wanted to see something for Mother's Day: 2 Sisters, Stamp, Scrap and Doodle, Card Cupids, and the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. Finally the color combo came from Corrosive Challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful creative week!
