Card for my mom

Hope you had a nice weekend, I managed to make 2 cards this weekend. I made this card for my mom- she is still in the hospital and will spend her birthday there. We're going to have a small gathering with her tomorrow.

I used a new Penny Black hedgehog stamp and followed Maria's Scrap pile Saturday sketch and adapted the Penny Black Saturday Challenge sketch. I colored the image w/ copics and used a glitter pen to decorate the butterfly. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set that I got on consignment from Pineapple Cove. We had to make a bow on the card and I have a really hard time making bows, so after 20-30 minutes (but who's counting?)I came up with this one. It doesn't look too bad. I was planning on turning the easel card into a calendar but I didn't have enough space and I thought that it would look too crowded on the bottom.

I hope my mom likes the card, but more importantly, I hope she will come home soon!

Have a great week, I'll post my 2nd card tomorrow. I also decided to enter this into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. We'll see what happens!

Take care!
