Paper Sweeties May Inspiration Challenge #31-'Celebrate Mom'

 
 
Hi there!
 
Happy May to you!  This is my third post for the day, so please scroll down to see my other two posts.  Since it's May 1st, it's time once again for Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge!  Beautiful colors with a lovely table setting for inspiration.  The winner of the challenge will be given a $20 gift certificate and an invite to be guest designer for the following month!  And, here is my card...
 

 
For my card, I started with a green card base.  I added an embossed white panel.  The doily border was made using an EK punch.  Polka dot panel with stitching for interest.  A doily placed under the punched circles.  I used Fancy Monograms stamp set to spell out Mom and added a pearl.  Ribbon(Watermelon)  and (Mint) tied with pearl cotton And, a flower added for the finishing touch. 
 
My Mom is no longer with us, but I do have many wonderful memories.  Here is one of my favorite photos of Mom and me out enjoying Mother's Day a few years ago!
 
 
 
 
You will want to follow along with the list below to see what my fellow teammates created...have fun!
