Mother's Day Challenge

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today's post is inspiration for Exploring Cricut & More's Mother's Day Challenge - Create something celebrating Mother's Day, and include a ribbon:

I need to have cards to give to my Mom and my Mother-In-Law, so this challenge helped me to get a head start on those.  For this card, I tried overlapping the ribbon to give it a folded look - I'm not thrilled with how it turned out... at least I know how I don't want to do it next time :)

I used the Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge to cut out the flower, and the patterned paper is from American Crafts.  I added some stickles and liquid pearls for dimension.

Let's see your creations for Moms this year - head on over to Exploring Cricut and More, and upload pictures of your projects so we can be inspired by you!

Have a great day!
