Getting Ready...

Happi Monday, everyone!  It's time for another challenge over at  Happileigh Scrappin'!  This week was Happi Sister Chris's turn, and the theme is Honor Your Mom.  Since Mother's Day is coming up fast, it's a great time to create a card for that special lady.  Here's the card I made:

Now, since my mother is an avid follower of my blog (hi mom!) I can't actually give this to her, even though she is the inspiration for the card.  She really is the best mom, and roses are her favorite flower as well as being part of her name, but I want to make sure that any card I give her will actually be a surprise.  So I will probably send this to my MIL, who also has "rose" in her name.

I created my card using Leigh's Tea Cup Stack, which can be found at her store here. The image was colored using Copic markers, then Stickles were added at the edge of the doilies. The patterned background is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time mat stack.  The sentiment, which is a touch hard to read due to the flash, says "World's Best Mom" and is from Punch Studio.

 Hop on over to the Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge Blog for all of the details and to see the inspiration from the rest of the Happi Sisters...and we have a new Happi Sister that you DEFINITELY want to meet!

Remember, you do not have to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image to enter the challenge, but if you do your card will be entered twice!  If you do not have any Happileigh Scrappin' images yet, you can find some freebies here, or you can go to the store here.  Leigh still has her spring sale going on (buy 3 and get 1 free) and there's currently a Mother's Day special (receive a free Mother's Day sentiment with every purchase).

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!

Challenges I am entering with this card:
The Paper Shelter: Ode to Moms
Fairy Tale Challenge Blog: Mother's Day
Catch the Bug Challenge: May Flowers and Pastel Colors  I hope the colors are pastel-y enough...if not, feel free to take me out of the running.  =)
