Monday Challenge #19 - You Make Me Smile!

Hello blogger friends. I've been so busy and haven't had much time to craft. I did make a card for the Monday Challenge taking place at My Craft Spot. This weeks challenge is to make a project to let someone know that you are thinking of them. I made a card for my mom. The inspiration took place from a Fiskars punch that I have. It punches the corner and then the edge. I don't know what it is called, sorry. Then I used my Walk in My Garden cartridge for the Rose. I think it looks good with the punch. Hope you enjoy it.
I only used red, black and green. Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Tea Dye and Crushed Olive around the flower and top leaves.
The sentiment is from Studio G and embossed in a pearl. I didn't want it to over power the card so that is why I used the pearl. You can see it better in person than in the picture.
I used dimensionals on the flower and part of the leaves.

I used the punch but only in the corners on the inside of the card where I will write mom a nice little note.

I used the same red paper on the inside and my Martha Stewart 'Iron Gate' punch to create a boarder on the bottom. I inked it a little with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Black Soot. I hope mom likes it.

God Bless you all,
