Perfect Sentiments Challenge #30: Handmade Flowers for Mom

This is my first official challenge as a member of the Perfect Sentiments Design Team, I'm so excited to join this talented group of ladies!

Our lovely sponsor this week is
Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More

One lucky winner will be drawn
to receive Five (5) digital stamps!


The Perfect Sentiment presents Natioinal Scrapbooking Day Blog Hop!  The hop begins this coming Friday at 6 PM.  Join us for 2 days of inspiration, fun and (of course) PRIZES!  Each Design Team Member will be hosting a challenge on her blog, there will be a prize drawn for participants in each challenge, plus anyone participating in at least 4 of the challenges will be entered in a drawing for our GRAND PRIZE!!!  See you Friday :)

Well there are a few more days before Mother’s Day so over at The Perfect Sentiment we thought we would sneak in one more Mother’s Day challenge.

The Challenge: create a card with a sentiment for Mother’s Day. Sentiment must be on the front of the card.

The Twist: add some handmade flowers to you card. You can make them with punches, dies, Cricut cartridges, etc. 

I chose this cute digi from Robyn's Fetish titled "Flowers for Mom" (perfect huh?).  It reminded me of a picture a little kid might draw for their mother, so I went with it!  Our twist was to use handmade flower, and while I've certainly done more elaborate ones, these simple little layered flowers from McGill's Paper Blossoms "Mini Petals" punch were all this card needed. I added a little bling (cuz you gotta, right?) and hand wrote the sentiment.

Come on over and play with us!  Just create a card with a Mother's Day sentiment (the sentiment must be on the front of the card) and add some handmade flowers for the twist, then hop over to The Perfect Sentiment and show us what you've done!
