Happy Mother's Day

Are you ready for a new challenge? This fortnight, we are celebrating Mother's Day at Ooh La La. Come on over and show us how you celebrate mom. If you play along with us, you could win some fabulous products!

I admit, I had a hard time with this project. I lost my mom last year around Mother's Day, after numerous hospital stays. It was so hard on all of us and it is so hard to believe she is gone.

Anyway, I apologize, in advance, for the fact this card certainly isn't one of my best.

For my project, I've created a card using all digi papers and elements from ooh La La Creation's new "All Dressed Up" CD. This CD has tons of wonderful papers and fashion related images. There's also a section called The Flower Shop, which is where this particular selection is from. You can get this CD here.

For the layout, I used the sketch at Sew many Challenges. I went with shades of purple and blue this time. As you know, if you visit my blog often, I love purple. This paper is gorgeous and I couldn't wait to use it once I seen it on the new CD. The circular sentiment and the image are both attached using foam tape, for dimension.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
