D2D Mother's Day blog hop

Welcome to the Designed2Delight Mother's Day blog hop! Head on over to start at the beginning, Faith's blog, there you can find all the info. You'll want to check it out, because there are lots of prizes available and several ways to win!

If you've arrived from my buddy Emily's blog, you are in the right place (she had three awesome projects on display, love all her flowery goodness). I chose to use this week's freebie Pail of Flowers, for my card. It's also the first one of the month, so you can still grab it up if you haven't already done so. I've printed it twice so I could pop up some of the blooms. I've used Tracy's Eat, Sleep, Stamp Sketchy Thursday #129 for the layout of my card. I LOVE bright colors, can you tell? I found this fun paper pack at Walmart this week and just couldn't resist.



Thanks so much for stopping by today. Faith has allowed each designer to pick an image to give away during the hop! How cool is that? Thanks Faith! I'm giving away one of my favorite D2D digis, On the Line to one random commenter. So leave me a comment if you would like to win. I'll announce the winner on Sunday night.

Now hop on over and see what Katie has created for today's hop.

Card Recipe:
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI ssw, Simply Chartreuse, Colorbok patterns
Embellishments: copics, stickles, nesties, SU border punch, dimensionals, American Crafts ribbon

OMG...I knew I had to grab the freebie when I saw it but had no idea how much it could come alive until I saw your BEAUTIFUL interpretation. You shading made it really pop. I tried to see if you cut some of the flowers out to make it more 3-d or if the shading was that super!!!
