Happy Mother's Day and a Sweet Blog Candy For You!

Mother's Day is fast approaching and to make the day even sweeter, I would like to share some blog candy to a lucky follower. ZVA Creative has some of the prettiest pearls and crystals and here they are, just waiting to go to their new home.
Please take the time to visit my fellow Design Team members at My Sheri Crafts and show the some love. :-) The Design Team at My Sheri Crafts comprise of:

To win the candy, you would have to: a.) post a comment or, b.) be a new follower. Previous followers will already be included in the drawing. The winner's name will be posted in the next challenge posting.

Now on to my project. I used Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante paper pad for the background papers, and the sentiment was cut at 2" using the Mother's Day Cricut cartridge. For the background, I cut a doily using a Cheery Lynn die. I inked the edges of the sentiment as well as the doily using Cat's Eye Ink. The vintage lace is from my friend Laurie. I added some flowers from Prima and a feather from Michael's. The butterflies were cut from the same Graphic 45 paper line and were pop dotted for dimension. I lined the butterflies with Stickles for added sparkle.

A Monogrammed Card For My Sheri Crafts

This week's projects are all about monograms. I wanted to make a card for my mom. She loves wrought iron designs and florals, so I tried to incorporate both in the design. I used paper from Basic Grey's Curio line and cardstock from Core'dinations. The frame was cut at 3 1/2" using the Lacy Labels cartridge, and her initial was cut at 1 1/2" using the Jasmine cartridge. I inked the edges and added some Viva Decor Pearl Pen accents to complete the card.
