Mother's Day

Hi friends!  I hope you've all had some happy crafting.  I finally pulled my Cricut out- for the first time since our move- and did some creating.  I made an A2 card on off-white cardstock.  Then I layered on some MME chevron paper, then some Bo Bunny Double Dot paper on top of that.  I used an embossing folder to emboss some vellum- did you know you could do that?- and layered it on top.  Then I used more of the MME chevron paper to create some banners.

I cut the rose from Celebrate with Flourish.  I didn't use the top layer, instead I just drew on the swirls with my versapen.  The sentiment is on the branding strip from the MME paper, which I love because it's still got the chevron pattern but it has the off-white coloring, and I stamped it with a sentiment from AmyR stamps.  I added some gems in the four corners and it was finished!

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
