patterned paper. . . .

is the basis for my card today!  I only used one stamp for this card, but am happy with the results:



These papers are from Graphic 45's Secret Garden 8 x 8 paper pad.  The stamp is an old one from Annette Watkins.  Buttons, gems and some Stickles platinum glitter were used for embellishments.

I am entering this card in three challenges:

Simon Says Stamp challenge (wings)


Mojo Monday 292


Here is their sketch:

And, Flutterby Wednesday (open)

Last week, I left on Friday for a two day trip and this week has been extra busy with yard work and other chores. Once a year, there is a local stamp sale and I have been attempting to get my "stuff" together and priced for this event which will be on the 18th.  Of course, I should have started this process much earlier!  :-) 

For those of you who are mothers, Happy Mother's Day to you.  Have a wonderful weekend!!
