Don't you just love the cluster beads in this inspiration photo? Its difficult to tell if that is just one necklace or several but WOW, what a POP of gorgeous summer color! I hope my sister, the jewelry designer is watching because I would love something just like this! But, I digress .... back to the challenge!
I used the (soon to be released) Blended Bloom Stamp (available beginning June 2nd) as the focal image. It's colored using the new Blendabilities Alcohol Markers which will be coming soon from Stampin' Up! in shades of Pumpkin Pie. The cardstock colors come fromt he challenge -- Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant and Pear Pizzazz. The sentiment is from the Happy Watercolor Stamp Set (retiring soon) and I used Dazzling Details to give the flower a little bling! A complete list of supplies is listed below. By clicking on any thumbnail, you can go directly to my online store to place an order for anything you see.
- Layer One -- Cardbase -- Tangerine Tango cardstock cut at 5.5 x 8.5", scored and folded

Now, what did I say about this being a quick and easy card! It's truly amazing!
So there you have it! I do hope you'll find some time to get creative this weekend and maybe even be inspired to use my challenge. Make sure and leave a comment if you do! Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there and to everyone who has a mother! I saw a TV commercial the other day which uses that old favorite tag line, "When you care enough to send ..." You know the one I'm talking about. Well, this year make it a hand-made card that you send to your mother. That will truly be the very best!
Have a great weekend, everyone and thanks for stopping by! I'll see you again soon but until then ...
