     Happy Mother's Day to all of you who are mothers.  This will be a fast post because I have to get ready for a Mother's Day luncheon with family.  I'll be back after lunch to add the list of challenges I'm entering.

     This card is a birthday card (although the sentiment is on the inside) for a little 8-year-old girl who recently danced in her first public ballet performance.  The image is from My Whimsical Little World and was a freebie for the progressive challenge on their Facebook page.

     I colored her with ProMarkers, then die cut her with a die from Spellbinders.  I used chalks on the edges of the die cut.  The papers are scraps that came from the Juniper Berry stack by DCWV.  The ribbon came from my stash.  The purple flower is made from scrap ribbon and the white flowers are punched from scrap CS, glittered, and then a bead is added to the middle.   The leaves are cut from scraps with a Cheery Lynn die.

     Today is another day when I get to pat myself on the back for using up all those scraps.  :-D
