A Peter Rabbit Mother's Day

I made another Mother's Day card for my mom.  Ever since I saw this stamp, I have been wanting to use it for this very purpose.  I reminds me of my son and my mom :)  She will love it I think especially since it will be from her grandson.  Would you believe the stamp is from Peter Rabbit: Winter Wishes, a Christmas set?  It is such a great image you can use is for anything.  The "Mother" sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I loved the colors in the Shabby Tea Room Blog.  It is one of my favorite color combinations because it is so pretty and feminine.  If I ever have a girl, her room would be these colors.  The challenge also called for flowers which is in the pattern paper and polk dots.  I made a flower using ribbon which I learned in a class by Melissa Frances. The green floral pattern paper and pink pattern paper is Pink Paisley and the green polka dot paper is from Graphic 45.  The blue cardstock is from Bazille.

I cut the circle and scalloped circle using the Sugar and Spice Cricut cartridge by Provocraft. 
I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Detail Brush to to color Peter Rabbit and his mom.  I used: Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, and Milled Lavender.  I inked the edges with Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen.

I can't wait to give it to my mom!
