PWC308 - Mother's Day/Spring

It's time to start thinking about Mom, well it's always time to think about Mom, but in the USA her special day is coming.  So to kick start your card making this week at Paper Pretties the challenge is PWC308 Mother's Day/Spring. For those of you in countries that have already had Mother's Day, and anyone else not in the mood for a Mother's Day card our challenge also accepts spring cards.  Enter your card in our challenge and you could be the winner of five digis.  Check out the Paper Pretties Challenge Blog for all the details and to see what the rest of the design team has created.  We can't wait to see your entries.

My card uses two of the stamps from the  Cluck Part II clear stamp set.  I don't have a clue why, but I sure do love the chickens in both the Cluck sets and I adore the wire mesh in this set.  The mesh was stamped on yellow card stock and Cluck was stamped on white card stock then cut out and glued onto the yellow card stock. Then that was popped inside a frame die cut to look like an old Polaroid photo.  I couldn't help but write "Mom and Me" and the year my daughter was born on the frame.  Then to dress it up a little I stuck a bling heart on it.  It looks like the photos I have in an old shoe box except of course my mom isn't a chicken.  Can you tell that the word on the patterned pattern that's peeking out under the frame is "eggs".  

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Cluck Part II - Clear"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - Neenah Classic Crest Brilliant White card stock; Bazzill "Sunbeam" and "Snow White" card stock; Close To My Heart "Jubilee" pack
