The Corrosive Challenge #149 - Flowers and Doilies and Bling , Oh My!

Happy Mother's Day!  I want to wish all the moms out there a wonderful day of relaxation and pampering!  I hope that there are some new crafty goodies, and some crafting "me" time, in your future today!  And to help you along with that I'm here to tell you about a fabulous new Corrosive Challenge, sponsored by the awesome Tickled Pink Stamps!  

This fortnight at The Corrosive Challenge it's "Flowers and Doilies and Bling, Oh My!"  Use at least two out of the three items on your creation and you could win the monthly prize for May!  TPS has generously offered 2 digi images of choice to our winner!  And you get the chance to be our guest designer for July as well!

My card is a Mother's Day card for my own mom!  I've used Easter Pinkette Daisy August from Tickled Pink Stamps and paired her with this month's sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces (#47).  Both were a lot of fun to work with!  August is my favorite Pinkette.  She reminds me of myself, I suppose.  Papers are Basic Grey - Lemonade.  I added flowers, a doily, and pearls in the center of the flower ribbon (for the bling).  The pennant banner was created using the Banner Day Die-namics die from My Favorite Things.  I placed some chipboard letters on top to spell "MOM".  The border punch is a Martha Stewart one and no creation of mine is complete without Tim Holtz, right?  lol  The metal corner is his.

I hope you'll visit both the Tickled Pink Stamps and The Corrosive Challenge blogs to see the amazing creations that my fellow design team mate have put together for you!  And I hope you'll play along!

I have this post scheduled in advance so that I can sleep in and then I'll be heading out to enjoy some family time and Chinese take-out.  Whatever your day brings, I hope it is fun-filled and happy!  Enjoy!

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
