Happy Mother's Day


Hi everyone.  Just wanted to share a Mother's Day card for the newest mom in our family.  Baby Ben is almost two months now and is so darn cute; his new mom, Megan, is a natural!

For this card, I used a Doodle Pantry pre-colored image from the Cuddly Bear Color Plus set; and a sentiment from another DP set, Fancy Shoe.  Initially, I formatted the bear image in Photoshop Elements.  Then I pasted the bear twice and merged the images onto some digi paper in a Word document.

I also incorporated some wonderful challenges into my design, including a handmade flower which I made with a Memory Box fancy blossom die set and a MS leaf punch.  The sketch is from Sketches by Carly #55. 

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
One Crazy Stamper OCS Challenge -  Mother's -- Mom-themed cards
The Perfect Sentiment (PSC30) -- Handmade flowers for Mom with mother's day sentiment on front

Thanks so much for your visit!  Have a great week!
