Paper Players #94 {Celebrate Today Mom} and Stamping 411

Here's the Pinterest Link 
And here's the original Photo Source 

Sunday is here and so is another fun challenge from the Paper Players. This week Nance is our hostess, she is looking for a card for mom using this awesome photo for inspiration from Pinterest! I was immediately inspired by the colours and the flags on the cupcakes.   I turned my ribbon into little flags shooting out from the flower. I also loved the sketch over at Stamping 411, and used that for my card but flipped the sketch.  


At the bottom of my card, where I stamped the sentiment, I added two lines using the Big Shot and the Textured Impressions embossing folder.  I also cut the bottom of that panel with the matching die cut called "Edgelits Adorning Accents". This was my first time using these! How fun!!!


Here is my card, made for mom! I think she will like it! I have made a couple other mom cards too...LOL! I think I will see if anyone at work needs one!

Stamps: Triple Treat Flower, Perfectly Penned
Inks: Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight
