Stampin' for the Weekend is challenging you to make a Mother's Day card. If you're from the states you'll just be ready early, nothing bad about that, so go ahead and get a jump on things. You can find all the challenge details here as well as get some more inspiration from the other Design Team members.
For my card I used a stamp that's been in my stash for a long time but this is the first time it's seen ink. Yeah! It's always a good thing when the rubber meets the ink. The dress was paper pieced so to make things work every element of the image was pieced. In person all that piecing adds a little dimension to the card. Also the lilies were covered in stickles and it doesn't show in the photo.
