For Mom; BasicGrey Challenge # 32

The BasicGrey Challenges blog has done it again. Christine provided a wonderful sketch found here. I had so much fun making this card! I paper pieced even more than I did on yesterday's card; I pieced the dress, pot, leaves, flowers, and even those four small flowers in the corners of the stamp frame (Iused a white gel pen to make the centers white). You may think this much paper piecing is a form of torture, but sometimes it just has to be done :)

Recipe:
decorative papers: BasicGrey Oh, Baby Boy!
stamp: My Favorite Things
cardstock: white Georgia Pacific (Wal-Mart)
flowers: green (Michael's); white (Prima from LFL "lovely friend Lauren")
brad: Stampin' Up! Build-A-Brad
rub-ons: ("for mom") American Crafts Kate font
ribbon: Making Memories woven ribbon
scallop squares: Nestibilities
other: Stampin' Up! dimensionals and scallop border punch

Wow--and I thought of not finding another fabulous headless lady card. This is a great layout, and the paper's colors and prints scream "Mother's Day"! Good job coordinating all the elements which appears to be your natural talent and one of many.

Crikey, another stunner! What a wonderful visit I'm having to your blog this morning. The choice of colour and papers is superb. The piecing isn't half bad either... it looks beautiful.
