Bodacious Mother's Day

I saw this beautiful sketch over on Beate's blog and it gave me the much needed jumping off point to make my Mother's Day cards.

I have extreme paper hoarding tendencies, so the fact that I was able to cut into my Crate Paper is a surprise even to me. For the other CS colors, I used SU's Apricot Appeal, Rose Red and Shimmery White. The picture doesn't show this real well (I have to work on taking better pictures), but the Apricot layer has been dry embossed with the Bodacious classy brass embossing template. Stamp set used is Bodacious Bouquet.

Lucky me! By the simple act of posting a link to this card on Beate's blog, I won the blog candy that she was giving away. Beate is super generous and gave me a brand new, unmounted Big Deal alphabet set from Stampin Up and a ton of beautiful ribbon. Not to mention a beautiful card that I will covet forever! LOL!
If you don't know who Beate is, please check out my links over on the right. She is uber talented and super nice!
