Feminine card from BasicGrey Lucille

  This has been a marvelous week!  I spent Sunday afternoon with my 5 year+ blog friend, Leslie Hanna...the crooked stamper herself.  And today I spent the day with Amy Sheffer catching up; we talked the entire time and did not craft anything.  I feel so fortunate to have such good (and crafty) friends.

  I wanted to try out my new "Lucille" BasicGrey 6x6 pad.  This collection will make terrific mother's day cards!  My ribbon is 8 or 9 years old, from Close to My Heart (CTMH).  The dark red Bazzill card stock and stamp are also old stash that I have had for a few years.

  I am entering my card in the following challenges:

paper:  BasicGrey "Lucille" 6x6; Bazzill card stock; white card stock
ink:  My Pink Stamper "Texas Chocolate"
ribbon:  CTMH
sentiment stamp:  SU "Teeny Tiny Wishes"

Happy Wednesday!
