Melonheadz Monday Challenge

Good Morning.  Welcome back to my little piece of cyber space.  I'm so glad you chose to join me along my journey.  

Today is my first posting as a Melonheadz Designer.  I'm so excited.  I love Nikki's designs and have been using them for a while.  If you haven't checked out our site yet, please do by clicking HERE.  Every two weeks we have another challenge with a great theme. This challenge's theme is Mother's Day/For a Special Lady.  I used the Mother's Day 2011 bundle to create my card.

I think this is such a sweet image.  I used Spectrum Noir pens to add the color to this image.  I used BGR1 to highlight the image before trimming it and rounding the corners.  I matted it onto Black card stock from Recollections.  The sentiment is from the same bundle and I also rounded the corners and matted it onto the black card stock.

I found these two DPs in my blue stash bin and thought they matched pretty well with the image.  I am going to give this to my MIL for Mother's Day and she isn't a frilly girly girl, so I liked the simpleness of this card.   I used a Fiskars Border Punch to  die cut the Turquoise strip of card stock (Recollections).  The card base is a nice Yellow from Recollections and is 6" square.  I added two little flowers that I had in my stash to finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate it.  God bless y'all and have a great Monday.
