Celebrating Mom's ~ Card 3

Hi everyone! Hope everyone had a nice weekend. I definitely enjoyed the weather :) Including the mini hurricane we had...well it was so quick it came and went before you could blink. It was fun trying to get everyone in the house within a 3 minute span...it became so dark and the all of sudden a gust of wind blew everything into the air...well not everything I did have a hold of my Jumbo Hot Dog...lol...I waited 3 hours for my "dog" I wasn't giving it up without a fight...lol..

Here is another general like Mother's Day Card. Even thought it has a comforting tone with the sentiment I thought it was still perfect. The background layer was distressed with Tim Holtz Distressing Inks and I have to admit I really like the look of it. I also didn't add ribbon to this one. I like not using ribbon when there is just enough not to include any. I like simple but still preferred a full flavoured card.. :) Hope you all like it.

Card Recipe:

Paper: Colorbok, GP, 140lb watercolor
Stamps: Very Versatile, Botanical Blooms
Inks: Tim Holtz Distressing Inks, SU Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Metal Brads, Spellbinders Dies, Stickles, MS Punch

This is very beautiful, I usually do not add ribbon because I can not tie a stink-en bow :)

I think this is a gorgeous card! Very soft and pretty and doesn't need ribbon. I really like that border punch you used too. I'll have to add that one to my extremely long list of things I want.
