A very Happy Mothers Day to all my readers.

Today is a very special day for all of us. Everyone has a direct link to motherhood. You either are a mom or have one, know a mom or are friends with one. Take a moment today to Dream, to say a little prayer or to just be. The card I have for you is all about the biggest mom that is a part of all of our lives. Mother Nature. I hope you enjoy it and it brings a smile to your face. It is this weeks Mojo Monday challenge entry.
I don't use my cuttlebug folders half as much as I should, and I'm making a little pledge to do so. This one is done on Core'dinations paper and sanded for the image to pop out. One other thing I need to use more of is this paper. And for the first time ever, I did a little paper piercing. Kinda cool if I may say so myself, although I gotta work on the straight lines lol.

Supplies:
Accessories: Fabulous Chipboard shapes (Chatterbox), Chocolate and Ivory Pearls (Kaiser Craft), Teal Satin ribbon, black and white ribbon
Coloring agents: Cerulean Azure (Nick Bantock)
Die cuts- Labels One (Spellbinders)
Paper: Card stock- True Black(PTI), Teal Hocus Pocus (Core'dinations), Darling Dear (Sassafras), Urban Oasis (SU)
stamps: Dream (Unity March KOTM)Coloring agents: Cerulean Azure (Nick Bantock)
Tools: Scor-pal, Purple Cows 2-in-1 trimmer, Big Shot, paper piercer, sanding block
