I made one last Mother's Day card. I wanted something fun, light, and fresh, and I think I achieved that very well. I had bought a stamp set called Love Games by Glitz while at the CK Convention back in Feb, and wanted to use the cute banner stamps. I cut the scalloped ovals and the banners using my Cricut (Best of 2009 and Cricut Craft Room), then stamped the banners on top of the cutouts. Then I stamped the sentiment on the ovals, offset just a little bit to leave room for the butterfly. I felt that it needed a bit more color, so I added blue dots on the scallops and in the corners of the card. I really love how it turned out.
