Mod Squad Challenge - Mother's Day

Today is my day to host the Mod Squad Challenge along with Lisa Babitz.  We have 2 lovely sponsors, Kat Scrappiness and Sparkle n Sprinkle,  along with 2 great prizes.  So you will want to enter.  You may enter as many as 3 times.

Our theme this week is Mother's Day.  I have a confession to make about Mother's Day.  I used to hate to go to church on Mother's Day because the preacher would get up and talk about this perfect, super- human Mother.  I didn't know any Mothers like that especially me.  All the mothers I knew had flaws, like everyone else.  Then I realized, we don't have to be perfect (no one is), we just have to love our children and do the best we can.  My kids turned out to be great adults, not because I was perfect but because God kept his hand on them.  

Now on to my card for the challenge.
Card Supplies:
5X7 card base
Image - Daisies Digital Stamp Set from Sparkle n Sprinkle
I printed the image in the middle of a piece of white cardstock, then used an Anna Griffin Ornamental Frame Die to cut it out.
Image colored with Promarkers
Tiny beads added to center of flowers 
Sentiment - foiled in mint green foil

I would love to give this card to my Mother but she is no longer with us.  She would have been 100 this year had she lived.  Happy Mother's Day, Mom.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I do hope to see your creations in our Mod Squad Challenge.  

God Bless You!!!  Peggy
