Just Because You're Amazing

I've been quiet all week and now you get me twice in one day!  Lol :)

But this is an exciting post for me since it is my first official post as a Meljen's Design team member!!  I know I did a little thank you post here last week, but that was more for me...whereas this post is actually associated with a challenge!!  Yay!

So the challenge for this week is Mom!  I've made a lot of mom cards these last few weeks, so mine isn't necessarily specific to mother's day, but could be given to a mom for any reason :)
I had a blast making this card!  Learned that the ink in my black refill bottle actually looks purple..but I rolled with it anyhow :)

I've used the super cute Little Layered Flowers set and colored them all in with my pencils.  Of course, I've added glitter to the centers.  A fun package came in the mail for me this week containing my order from Simon Says Stamp, so I pulled out my new Stitched Journaling die from Lawn Fawn and did some half embossing to make a small tag for the sentiment, which was also in that fun package.

The stripes are from a Tim Holtz stencil and I used some embossing paste to fill it all in.  It was really fun to see this whole card come together, and I think the flowers just finished it off perfectly!

So swing by Meljen's Designs to check out the rest of the design teams creations, and then join in the fun!!!

    Artistic Inspirations #90-All for Mom/Anything Goes
