I hope everyone had a very lovely Mother's Day! I spent the day crafting and spending time talking with Nessa and Lee on the phone, and watching a movie with Al!! A great day!

This pretty card worked up fast, especially when you use a background paper that is your focal point! I chose a lovely hydrangea patterned paper from K & Company's Tim Coffey Cottage Garden paper stack. My gorgeous ribbon treatment features May Arts Ribbon from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities® Ribbon Buckles and a couple of my decorative stick pins.

I cut two of the largest ornate Ribbon buckle out of Doodlebug White Glitter Paper and threaded one of them with Royal Blue and Ivory striped grosgain ribbon then adhered it to my background paper. I added a gorgeous silk bow I made from 1.25 Silk Ribbon - Celery and wrapped the ends to the back before mounting that panel to more glitter paper, then to a blue card. I cut my second Ribbon buckle in half and attached them to the top and bottom of the former buckle to give a more lacy effect. 

I cut, embossed and stenciled on the tag piece of Twisted Metal Tags and Accents before stamping my sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black. I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam dots to adhere my sentiment to my card, then I added two of my decorative stick pins, a few pretty pearls and rhinestones to finish the card.
