Have you started....

... making your Mother's Day cards yet? You've got a week, so hop to it. I used some challenges to get me in the Mom's Day card making mood. This one's for my Mom-in-law.

I used the sketch at Everything But The Kitchen Sink

At first glance, I had no clue what to do with this sketch, but it was so fun once I got started. Although that big gold rub-on gave me a fit. It's originally the size of the card front, so I needed to trim it down (and curve it, but that's a whole other nightmare). Well, running the sides through my trimmer caused parts of the rub-on to rub off onto its backing. Grrrrr. With lots of tiny movements, I pieced it back together. However, when NOT cutting them down, these Jenni Bowlin rub-ons are perfection. This card also fits the Hero Arts challenge: Mother's Day.
