Super cool photo with such a fantastic quote 
that is perfect for Mother's Day!

Here is my card using a Bugaboo digtal stamp:

STAMPS: Digtial Image and Sentiment (Bugaboo Stamps).
PAPER: Gray cardstock base; DP - In Bloom (My Mind's Eye).
INK: Copics.
EXTRAS: Border emboss folder (Darice); gold ribbon; Diamond Stickles; coral enamel dots.

I used  a digi stamp from Bugaboo for my card.  Is she not the cutest little thing?  Love all those flowers too!  I got my inspiration from the little leaf at the top of the charm.  It led me to the patterned paper, In Bloom, by My Mind's Eye.  I love all the peachy shades, pale yellows and grays.  There are actually pale yellow flowers on the background paper behind the digital stamp.  

It took me longer than I realized to color the image.  I had to be creative with the Copics that I have in order to find the right shades to come close to the colors in the patterned paper.  I am very happy with how it turned out.  I decided not to color the frame all the way in and leave it a little sparse to emulate the softness of the patterned paper.  To finish it off I added Diamond Stickles for some sparkle in the flowers and her hairbow.

Make sure you stop over at the {PIN}spirational Challenge Blog and check out all the wonderful projects from my fellow Design Team members.  We have several new members joining us and this week is their debut!  So check them out, visit their blogs and leave them some blog luv!  Then, use the inspirational photo to make your own paper project to play along with us.  You might be one of our next winners and win one of the great prizes being offered this week from our fabulous sponsors!
