WOJ Willow Card for Mom's Birthday

Morning! I finished up my Mom's birthday card this morning. Her birthday is the 17th, so I need to get this in the mail today.  We also have family coming in tonight (can't wait!), and I need to finish getting the house ready, but I wanted to post this first.

I tried something a little different (for me), and followed this sketch from Cupcake Craft Challenges Blog:


Here is what I came up with:



Here's a pic to show (hopefully!) the Shimmer Mist. The card is so sparkly IRL, but I had a hard time capturing that with my camera. :(

Image: WOJ Willow with a Basket
Paper: BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses, SU! RidingHood Red
Ink: SU! RidingHood Red (sentiment and image), SU! Pastels (colored with Blending Pen)
Pink pearls, ribbon, and flowers from my stash
Lace border: Cut from Martha Stewart "Thank You" note 
SU! Champagne Shimmer  Paint (mixed with alcohol and sprayed on)

I am entering this in the following:

*Cupcake Craft Challenge #116 -- Sketch
*Fresh Brewed Challenge #22 -- Two or More Patterned DP
*Inktegrity Design #22 -- Ribbons and Flowers
*The Sisterhood of Crafters -- Birthday
*A Crafty Little Place Challenge #64 -- Red, White and Green
*Flourishes Challenge #FTTC92 -- Glitter (I used Shimmer Mist all over my finished card--love that!)
*Lexi's Creations Challenge #26 -- Anything Goes
Let's Ink It Up Challenge #6 -- No Digies and Recycle (I cut the lace border from the bottom of a MS Thank You card)
*2 Sisters Challenge -- Birthday
*Top Tip Tuesday #9 -- Use an Image
*Cute Card Thursday Challenge -- Anything goes
*Paper Play Challenge #45 -- Ribbon, Lace & Flowers

Well, that is probably enough challenges, 'ya think?! :-)

I'm off to mail Mom her card and to finish getting ready for our company!!

Hope you have a craft-making day!
