CPS Sketch Challenge 166

Happy Mother's Day to everyone!!  I hope everyone has big plans for today.  We are having everyone over to our house for a cook-out.  I'm thinking that it might be a "cook in" because it is going to be windy & chilly.  Oh, well it will still be nice to have everyone here.

Today I am playing along with the CPS Sketch Challenge sponsored by JustRite Stampers.  I needed one more Mother's Day card for my mother in law and this sketch worked out well for that.
I used JustRite Curlz Font ensemble to create  "MuM" and a border from one of the new sets just released called "Applique".  I double inked the images (Memento Rich Cocoa for the center and Memento Bamboo Leaves for the border).  Then I colored the border with Copics, diecut with Spellbinders Labels One and then edged with Copic.
To create my flower, I cut several different sizes of flowers using my Cricut Expression along with the Walk In My Garden Cartridge and layered them together with pop dots.  Then I used the Curlz Font ensemble again to create my sentiment "Happy Mother's Day".  Next I diecut it with Spellbinders Pinking Circles and edged it with a Copic.
To create the arrow from the sketch, I applied Kaiser pearls.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  I hope everyone has a great Mother's Day and enjoys time spent with your moms.
