Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is tomorrow, so I finally got around to working on her card.  I decided to make an identical one for my sister.  This is her first Mother's Day and my mom and I secretly "helped" her babies make her a gift.  My dad took pictures of the process, and I'm going to include those in the card.

Anyway, here is my card:


The rose and the oval came from Quarter Note.  The oval was run through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.  The ribbon is recycled from a shopping bag handle.  I added some i-rock gems on the corners.  The stamp on the front is from the "Spring in Bloom" set from Sweet Cheeks Stamps.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Die Cuttin' Divas challenge #114--sketch
