LOC NR Happy Mother's Day

Hello everyone - I hope you are enjoying your weekend - whatever stage it is at!  For me it is Saturday evening and we are winding down for the evening - not that there is much to wind down from as we have had a very relaxing day - the fact that my DH and DD2 went out this morning and came back with a baby rabbit - she is adorable - I will try and gt a photo to upload tomorrow - we ere woo busy holding her today to think of photos!

I have another Layers of Color New Release card to show you - this one is early I know, but is for Mother's Day - never too early to think of Mum is it!! 

The sentiment is from the Happy Wishes art stamp set, illustrated by LOCs newest illustrator, the lovely Nina Brackett and has been cut out using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Classic Oval Nestibilities.  I am loving the Grand Calibur and can see the benefits of having a Cutting Machine that is made specifically for the company's own product - it is divine!

 and the gorgeous roses are from the Vintage Roses art stamp set.  For the background DP I have used the Belle Brocade art stencil - I think this one is my favourite of the art stencils - although it is a hard choice - they are all divine!!

This card is for the following challenges:
Fairy Tale - Flowers
Crafty Pad #104 - Something New - Art Stamp Set 
Creative Belli - Anything Beginning with 'P' - pearls
Let's Ink It Up - NO DIGI and Anything Goes
Tip Top Tuesday - All Sentimental
Oldie But Goodie Challenge - Bright and Cheerful
