Mid-Week Throwdown

The mid-week throwdown over at the Stars & Stamps blog is to create a mother's day card. I know I'm really going out on a limb with this card, but I d/l this free digi image a while ago and I always felt it would make the perfect mother's day card! LOL If you're a mom, you KNOW you've dealt with situations like this, so I thought a card like this would bring a smile to a mom who knows what motherhood is really all about! Hah!
I wish I knew who created this image and if any of you know, please leave a comment and I'll edit the post to give proper credit. I used a piece of DP from my stash and some pink cardstock. The sentiment was created with 2 different masked stamps to create the words I wanted. I added a snippet of turquoise ribbon and a couple of pink gemstones to complete this card.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all are having a great Wednesday!
