PKS 13-16: Anything Goes!

Happy Monday! I hope you all are having a great start to your week! My weekend was pretty low key, worked all day Saturday and relaxed Saturday evening, then spent nearly ALL day yesterday in my crafty space! It was lovely. :) Since I had some extra time I decided to play along in this week's anything goes challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps!

Mother's Day is just around the corner, so I took this opportunity to make a card for my mom:

This was my first time making a swing card! The cut from the Silhouette store made it super easy. :) The base is purple DCWV cardstock and the patterned papers are also DCWV, from their Glitter Stack. Picked this stack up at Michael's for $5 a couple of weeks ago - such a great deal!

I am in LOVE with the center of this card! The scallops are also cut with my Silhouette and the 3D flower file is from the Silhouette store as well. I used Star Dust Stickles on the orange petals to match the treatment in the glitter paper - although it's a bit hard to see here. The adorable face is from PK-943 Funshine Face Parts and is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. 

Here's the card flat and folded, it's about 5.5" tall. 

I found this sweet Mother's Day poem/sentiment here. I wasn't looking for something sappy, just something sweet and kind that I know will make my mom smile. I think this will do the trick! I also have another Mother's Day project planned using some good ol' Peachy Keen Stamps - can't wait to get it made and posted!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful week. :)
