Play Date # 80 & Paper Smooches GDT

Hey everyone!! So since yesterday was Mother's Day.. Which we call Mom's day.. since my kids call me Mom.. :) anyway, I made a special card for my Mom who is not only MOM but my BEST FRIEND.. I used a template that you can get for free see this POST and also I was truly inspired by this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge colors, Red, Orange, and White.. Since the inspirational picture was of flowers, I took the green from it too :)

So I made a shaped card, and the stamp set called Friendly Flowers

from Paper Smooches..I just love all of Kim's designs (she is the sponsor of The Play Date Cafe this week too) they are all so adorable.
I colored them using copic markers, cut them out, embossed the cloud using my cuttlebug, I used Martha Stewart shredding scissors to make the grass oh then used puffy paint to go around the cloud.. This truly was so much fun to make.. and super simple..

Here is a 3d shot so you can see some of the texture and the fun grass going everywhere. I crinkled it to make it pop..

and a fun side view of the card.. I hope you have enjoyed my creation.. HUGS
