My Cricut Craft Room Card Creating Tuesday

This weeks challenge was to create a card based on a sketch  and here is the sketch.
The concept was to create a card for your Mom based on something about your Mom that you hold dear to your heart. For me that was my Moms love of nature and gardening. That is something she passed on to all of her children and I passed it to my daughter and she is passing it to her children. OK with that being said here is what I used to make my card.
I used the Paper Lace 2 cartridge to create the scalloped edge using the blackout feature.Mom was cut from Cricut Craft Room Basics in the standard cut and the blackout feature to layer it.The bird is from the Imagine Cartridge Lori's Garden. The pink butterfly is from the same cartridge.
I started with a white card base and sprayed it with Lime Metallic Maya Mist. then added 2 layers of contrasting card stock. I used Liquid pearls along the edge of my scalloped piece to give it dimension. I did use some little rosettes and resin pieces on this card. I try to stay with using cricut images but I needed tiny flowers to place on the branch. 
Thank-you for taking the time in your busy day to visit my blog and have a wonderful creative day!
