Amy's Make a Card For Mom Sketch


This is a card I made for Amy's Make a Card For Mom Sketch. I used to LOVE when Amy had her Super Sketch Sundays, so when I saw a sketch challenge on her blog, I HAD to do it! :) She challenged us to make a card using our favorite patterned paper. You know, the stuff that we would usually hoard. She challenged us to cut into it and make a special card for our mom. I absolutely LOVE this paper from Scribble Scrabble's Felicity Collection. Julee sent it to us with the stamps for her last release. . .and I just LOVE it! I have to get more because this was the last piece of my favorite pattern in the collection! What's funny is that even though this is my favorite patterned paper (with the earth tones and daisies), it would not be my mother's favorite. My mother loves pastels and very dainty looking patterns. She'd think this was cute, but she wouldn't go ga ga over it, know what I mean? Thanks for the challenge, Amy!
Oh, and just a reminder about the Vervalicious Inspiration Challenge. Entries are due by April 22, and a random winner will receive $15 in Verve Bucks to spend at Verve!
