Sassy & Classy Mother's Day Card

Thank goodness its Friday!!! I'm so ready for the weekend. I'm sharing a card I made for Mother's Day for one of my dear friends. I love the way this card turned out. It is so cute!!! I should have massed produced it, but no, my cards are usually one of a kind made for each unique individual. But I'm thinking it would save me a lot of time at holidays to mass produce one awesome design.

This card is sassy and class just like my friend. I am loving the colors I picked for this card and the grey background was stamped by me to make my own print/pattern paper. The outfit the lady is wearing was printed on my Cricut Imagine machine using the Black and White cartridge, I also inked the edges with some white chalk ink and I love the effect it created. I added a cute tiny flower and a rhinestone with my iRock for some sparkle. Towards the bottom I added some matching sheer ribbon. The card shape is cut from Birthday Bash (love that cartridge) and the lady is cut from Forever Young. The sentiment if from MCT.

 Here is a coordinating tag I cut to go on the gift box. I love this tag with its scalloped edge on the bottom!

 I also added some black ribbon on the waist to look like a belt, but in the picture its a wee hard to see. 

I also stamped and inked the tag and added matching ribbon. 

I will be entering the card into the these challenge:
