April Creative Challenge-Mom

Hey everyone, and welcome to April's Creative Challenge with My Favorite ThingsOur Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, "It's all about Mom" 

For my card, I used the super cute a la mode- All Star. I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. Her pants were paper pieced with some of the MME On The Bright Side One paper. I used the Banner Day Alphabet to stamp MOM on her shirt, and the number one on the flag as well. I hand drew in the number symbol. I used the Banner Strip Die-namics for my Mom Banner, which was cut out of Night of Navy, and more of the MME paper. My hearts were cut out of Wild Cherry from the Notched Tag Die-namics. I used brads from Michael's to attach my sentiment, and decorate my card. My ribbon is the Wild Cherry Grosgrain sold by MFT, and I used a Creative Express Spiral clip. On the base of my card, I used the Open Zig Zag Border Die-namics. My other cardstock color besides Wild Cherry and Night of Navy is Spring Moss from PTI. Finally, I added my sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental about Mothers set with the First Place Award Die-namics.

For the inside, I used the same supplies, and two more sentiments from the Clearly Sentimental about Mothers set. The Mini Banner Day Alphabet was stamped on my hearts, as well. At the bottom, I left the top of my panel open to create a pocket for a gift card! My mom is the kind of mom that has EVERYTHING she wants, so I give her gift cards, mostly, so she can buy whatever she happens to find along the way, lol!

Here are the Die-namics I have used:
