Pati's Kisses

I created this Mother's Day card using Pati's Kisses digital stamp from Elisabeth Bell Designs for the Mother's Day challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World.  I used the sketch from Card Patterns.
The colors I used on my card are from the brown, pink and cream color challenge at The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. The base of my card is a pink floral patterned paper backed in brown cardstock.  I added a strip of brown cardstock to the bottom of the card. To the strip of brown I added a piece of cream cardstock that I punched using an eyelet lace border punch.  I added a piece of brown ribbon to where the brown strip and cream strip meet.  I added a piece of the same brown ribbon coming down the middle of the card from the top.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I backed the image in brown cardstock, then in sugar n spice cardstock (pink) and then again in cream cardstock. I added the image to the card and then added a bow made out of the brown ribbon to the top of the image. I typed the sentiment out on my computer and backed it the same way that I backed the image.  I added 3 cream pearls between the image and the sentiment.  I also added a cream pearl to each side of the ribbon that runs across the card.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
