Mo's Challenge # 131

Stop and Smell the Flowers!

Mo's Challenge this week is to use flowers on your cards or projects. That's hardly a challenge at all! You can use ready-made flowers or use your creativity and make your own.

The inside says, "...for all the joys of a new baby girl? Well, ready or not, here she comes!"

 My half-fold card uses Mo's cute new image, "buskettie". What a sweet image, and one I think all parents can relate to!

I made this to give to our youngest son and his wife for their baby shower this past Sunday. The baby is due on April 30th, but it looks as if she may come early!
 I chose to make it in the colors of the adorable  nursery they've prepared for her. It's all in pink and brown polka dots with a subtle giraffe theme.

Here's the cake I ordered from a wonderful bakery in a nearby town. It was four layers of white cake with a raspberry filling and butter-cream frosting. Delicious!

Images:"buskettie" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copic markers, Cuttlebug with  Memory box swirl border die, Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set, Mounting tape, Sticky tape

Papers: SU! Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Chocolate Chip, Neenah smooth white, SU! textured DP, Unknown polka dot DP

Embellishments: Prima daisies with SU! corduroy brads, WOC flowers

I hope you have fun with this challenge! We're anxious to see what you'll come up with!
Enter Mo's Challenge for a chance to win a gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil.

I love it when you visit!

Hi Elaine! OMG! This card is just so precious! Your coloring is fabulous and I just love the sentiment you created to go with the image! The chocolate and pink is wonderful combination and I especially like it because you used a darker, richer pink! Beautiful!!

I love this new image from Mo. It mixed with your sentiment makes such a witty card for your son and his wife. Those days of busketti messes will come along before they know it. This is fabulous Elaine and so is that adorable cake. I collect giraffes so it's right up my alley. :-) Hugs!
