Hello everyone and welcome back to another DT challenge.   As we all know,   Mother's Daty is right around the corner.  Why not give her a homemade card. Here is what you have to do to participate....... Challenge #4 Anything Mother's Day & Use Faux Stitching Giveaway: Our Sponsor this week  is Sakura (  We all love gelly roll pens :D  A Set of 6 pens Gelly Roll Glitter and set of 2 white Gelly Roll is what you could win.

To enter the challenge head over to and add you project under Mr Linky.   You will also get to see what the other DT members created. :D
 Remeber to use a Mother's Day theme and faux stitching.

Here is my project:

This is a letter envelope size card meaning it is   1/4 of an inch smaller all the way around so that it will fit in the letter size envelope.

 The paper is from Stampin UP in :
-crumb cake
-soft suade

Paper from DCWV:

Ink is from Stampin Up:
-soft suade
-cherry cobbler

Stamp set by Stampin Up: Aviary Set

  Stickles in Stardust was added to the cage along with some beige pearls.
Ribbon was added to eh left side before adhearing the paper to the babse crumb cake.
The sentiment was printed off of the computer and inked up.  It was then added to the soft suade paper.  The paper was then roughed up using my cricut spatula tool.

Mini Paper flowers were glued down and I used my I-Rock tool ti add some bling to the flower centers.
Faux stitching was added using a gelly Roll pen in the Copper Star  color around the whole card.
This beautiful card will be going to my mother in Law.   I know she will jusr love it.
