Mothers Day Card- challenge crazy/Blog Candy Alert

I love the softness of yellow and when paired with white, to me it is a stunning combination! I scoped out my sisters blog the other day and was reminded of some of the same tools sitting in my cupboard that she pulled out and used: the scallop punch and score tool. Kris makes some amazing cards and I am always inspired by her work. We have different tastes- I love vintage and stamps, she is into graphic designs and she loves to use chipboard and stickers on her cards.

Her yellow card inspired me to make a SIMILAR design for mothers day. Sad thing....I just bought some cards because I wasn't sure I would have the time to make them :( Life of a cardmaker!LOL!

This card uses all scraps from my bin: white 7x6 cut down to fit the 5x7 card. The yellow for the border and rose flower used an old bobunny patterned paper, they were 12x1.5" strips (which I cannot believe I kept!) Rhinestones, satin ribbon, prisma glitter finish off the card. The mothers day sentiment was typed on the computer and cut with my nesties.
