♥ A Shabby Chic Mother's Day Card ♥ {My addictions!}

♥♥♥ See 1st post of the day, below! Chance to win a stamp set! ♥♥♥

I CANNOT stop using these Girls Paperie papers!! I have an extreme addiction! If I had to use them on every single card from now on, I would not mind! Someone please help me! I need an intervention! LOL Well, ok, it's not that bad, but I do love these papers!!
I paired the papers up with an adorable plastic cherub, (believe it or not. It looks like resin!) a tea-stained heart and mini roses from Little Pink Studio, (I'm addicted to that store too!) a vintage music sheet cover from The Graphics Fairy (another addiction)...wow, maybe I do need an intervention! I also used a Melissa Frances rub-on transfer, ok I won't say it...a Jenni Bowlin vintage stick pin and some ribbon and crocheted trim. Ok, I am addicted to everything on this card! There I said it! ;)
I used this week's AWESOME sketch from Card Patterns! Love this!
And I was inspired by the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog: Mother's Day/Girlie
Paper Play Challenges: Distressing
Papertake Weekly Challenge: It's a Mom Thing!

Have a wonderful weekend! Oh, and don't forget to see the post below on your chance to win a fabulous Gina K Stamp Set!

Hugs...
