ODBD Shining The Light Challenge #11, Mom

Hello & welcome to Saturday. At Our Daily Bread Designs, it's time for Shining The Light Challenge # ODBDSLC11, and this week, we are going to create a Card or Project for Mother's day.
Come play along with us on the ODBD Blog for your chance to win a $15 Gift Certificate to use towards stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store.

Here is my take:

Stamps: ODBD, Mom
Paper: Simmery/Glittery DP by SEI- Juliette Collection (available at ODBD), Adhesive Glitter CS, Gray CS
Ink: SU, Marvy Matchables, Silver Dye
Accessories: Silver Pearl Adhesives by Jolee's Boutique, Pearls, Satin Ribbon, Circle Spellbinders, Martha Stewart Border Punch
This card also falls into SCS Saturday Inspirational Challenge #IC229, which was *to be inspired by Designs from Green Rainbow Shop* this week.
And the SCS #WT267 Challenge, from Thursday, which was *to mix-up* patterns.
And the OCC - Challenge, which is to use *blossoms* on our projects this next week.

These flower blossoms are cut directly from the S.E.I.  Designer paper. The Silver Gem adhesive Buttons are from Jolee's Boutique's decorative dimensionals. All I did was add the pearls to the centers to cover up the button holes. This card is actually very sparkly IRL, but the camera doesnt quite capture all that shine.

Ok, now go check out the rest of ODBD's Challenge Team's awesome Mother's Day creations for more great inspiration:
