Happy Mother's Day

Happy Monday to you and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I'm happy that you stopped by because it's time for another "Challenge Me Monday"!  This week our challenge for you at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is to create a project for your Mother, Grandmother, Aunt or other special lady in your life using her favorite color.

My card this week is for my own special Mama.  I know that pink is one of her favorite colors and she really likes the "vintage look".  I'm still trying to get the hang of creating a "vintage" look and thought I would give it a go for this year's Mother's Day card....


* Patterned paper - K&Company
* Flower and leaves - Cricut cartridge "Flower Shoppe"
* Trim - Canvas Corp Fringe
* Spellbinders - "Lacy Ovals"
* Sentiment - My Pink Stamper "Happiest Moments"
* Twine
* Stick pins - Maya Road

I distressed all the edges of my cardstock and inked them up with Ranger Distress Ink in "Vintage Photo"  I also machine stitched around the edges...

Thanks for letting me share my card with you today!  And, before you go, I need to announce the winner of the "Jubilee" cartridge from last week's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl!  I had a total of 55 comments and I let my hubby be my "Random Number Generator!  I told him to choose a number between 1 and 55 and he chose........

Number 42! (which happened to be a score on the ballgame he was watching at the time!)
