What is more "Mother's Day" than a new baby?  I have a friend who just had a baby and she is ADORABLE.  I made this card with her in mind.  It worked out perfectly too because the new challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge is "Mother's Day".  Why not make a card for your mom or daughter or close friend and join us!  We'd love to see your beautiful work!!

For my card I used an image called "Mother Child 1".  It's perfect!  As with all my cards, I kept it simple.  It's funny because I love cards that have so much on them - but when I try to do something similar it never turns out.  I guess I've just come to learn that my style is basic and simple...that's just the way it is.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today!  God bless you!!!!!

Zella - I too love other crafter's cards that have a lot of embellishments and such, but like you when I try it somehow it just looks too gawdy. I always ask my hubby to have a look before I add stuff to mine, and he gives me an honest opinion. Sometimes I don't like what he said, but most of the time I go with his input.
I love your card, and you picked the perfect image for it. I almost chose the same one, but I made my card with the intention of selling it, and sure enough my chiropractor bought it with some other things I made for her. I will use this image someday, most likely for a craft fair later in the year!

I think there ought to be a class call build a tasteful but busy card. This one you have made is lovely. Thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday. Blessings, Carole
