A Card for Mom ♥A Shabby, Colorful Tuesday Trigger♥

Spring is finally here. And when I think of Spring I think of open windows...the first blooms of flowers...butterflies and of course Mother's Day. So all that inspired me to make this card. As well as some awesome challenges out there from The Shabby Tea Room (Spring inspired and faux stitching on your card), The Play Date Cafe (awesome colors shown below) and finally this week's Tuesday Trigger from the Moxie Fab World Blog (photo inspiration below).
When a child is born, so is a Mother. What a beautiful saying, isn't it? And so true too! Mother's Day will be here soon, so I decided to get a jump start on some Mother's Day cards. I am making them for the special women in my life, especially my Mom, of course. This is one of them.I used some gorgeous paper from Prima from the Pastiche Collection, some chipboard pieces which I painted and then glittered or faux stitched, ribbon, crocheted lace, a button, hemp cord, flower gems and a Melissa Frances Rub-On.I hope you all have a wonderful day today! Enjoy the beautiful Spring weather. (hopefully it is beautiful by you!)

Hugs...
