Bloggers Challenge 150

The Bloggers Challenge theme this week is Mother's Day. I had fun making this card. I just received this stamp in the latest Club Scrap kit. I just love it. When I went to use it, I decided to make a watercolor image using my watercolor crayons.  I used one of my Fiskar border punches to make the lacy border along the sides. The paper is all Club Scrap. Happy Mother's Day is gold embossed. It's a more girlie card than I'm used to making, but it seemed appropriate for the day. I hope my aunt likes it.
