You're an Amazing Mother

Today over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations our theme is Mother's Day.  I've made a few of these cards already and need to get the mailed off, but when I saw the sketch for Sketch for You to Try for May, I knew EXACTLY what set I wanted to use.

I just ordered for the first time from Gina K. Designs with the new release as I had to have the set from Tami Mayberry called Vintage Notes.  I thought her little note stamp would go perfectly in my Project Life album (which I'm behind on).  Besides that, Gina had a free paper pack deal going on so I couldn't resist and I chose to get the Red Carpet designer paper pack.

I did add in another set with this to get it to say exactly what I had in mind, so I used Verve Stamps set Happy Days and just inked up the portions I wanted to use.  I hand wrote the "an" on my little note sheet.  My picture is not great, but the patterned paper has a nice little shine to it and I've added some Sparkly fluff to the tips of the flowers.

This weeks Paper Player's Challenge is a Mother's Day theme as well so I'm playing along with them on the theme but the inspiration photo over there looks yummy as well.
Card details:
Stamps: Vintage Notes from Gina K. and Happy Days from Verve Stamps
Cardstock: Spring Rain, Neenah White, Kraft and Red Carpet Designer Paper from Gina K.
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown, Dare to be a Diva Red, copic markers
Embellishments: stapler, dimensionals, Rockstar Red sparkly fluff
