Mother's Day card

This is my latest card.  It is my submission for Flutterby Wednesdays and Fantabulous Cricut.  I believe it meets the requirements for both of these challenges.

Why does it take FOREVER to get things just the way you want them, and then once you step back, you say, "Dang, that's a little off right there?"

What I have learned from constructing cards is, it's much faster and easier to make your second card, identical to the first (or at least pretty similar to the first).  And the second one usually has improvements, so it's more attractive.  This is one thing I have learned.

Cricut cartridges used were a tag from Birthday Bash (I think) and the butterfly is from Give a Hoot.

Thanks for looking...enjoy your day :)


  1. I like those flowers. Thanks for playing at FCCB.


  2. This is really pretty. Love the color combo and flowers. What a great idea to make 2 cards. I always feel like there is "something" just not right about my cards and often wish I had something "perfect" to post on my blog.

  3. This is gorgeous! Love the ribbon flowers. :) Thanks for joining us at Flutterby Wednesday!
