Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! I hope everyone is having a lovely day and is getting spoiled rotten by your kiddos. We've been having awful high winds all weekend, so I am hoping it will settle down enough this afternoon that I am able to go see my mother for lunch. Keep your fingers crossed!

Being that it is Sunday, it means that it is also time for the new weekly challenge with Crafty Sentiments. This week, we are challenging you to make something with the above sketch.

I decided to use the sketch for the Mother's Day card for my mum. My sister and I both had long hair when we were kids, so I thought that Girl with Heart would be perfect for her card. Isn't she sweet?

She was colored with copic markers, and layered with circle Nestabilities. I decided to use a flower in place of the second circle on the sketch, and when I found these red daisies in my stash, I knew they would be perfect. (My mum LOVES red.)

Copic markers used:

Challenges I participated in with this card:

Crafty Sentiments - sketch
Polka Doodles - summer blossoms
By the Cute & Girly - celebrations
The Pink Elephant #65 - Mommy, I love you
