There's nothing above a Mother's Love

Sharing another beautiful Mother's Day card.  Sure hope tomorrow is a lot nicer than today and yesterday.  Would really like to see some sunshine......   If not, I'll just continue to stare at this beautiful card.

This card was made using my cricut.  I used two different cartridges:  Wrap it Up and Kate's ABC.  I made a standard A2 card.  

Card Recipe:

White cardstock - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Green cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4"
Patterned Paper - 3 3/4" x 5"

For the fence, grass and roses, I used the cricut cartridge "Wrap It Up".  Everything except for the roses are located on page 45 and was cut at 3".  For the blue fence posts, I ran them through my cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder.  

The roses are located on page 25 and cut at 1/2".  More pictures of the roses are below.  I added clear rhinestones to the center to help with a boost of bling.

The hat was cut from the cricut cartridge "Kate's ABC".  You can locate it on page 26.  I cut it at 1" and added small rhinestones to rim of the hat.

Happy Mother's Day was stamped on green cardstock and punched out with my EK label punch.  I again added some small rhinestones and ran hot pink ribbon and the patterned paper and tied a knot.  Attached to label to the card using foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by.  I sure hope your having a much nicer day then I am.  So I'll just continue to spend my day admiring this colorful card.  P.S. if you have a few seconds please leave a comment.
