Cuttlebug Be Inspired #82, Mother's Day!

It's time for another Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot - Be Inspired Challenge! With Mother's Day right around the corner, this week, we are creating projects with MOTHER'S Day in mind! Here is mine:

The MOTHER lettering was actually a decorated dimensional sticker that I purchased at Joann's for $4.99.  BUT... I soooo altered it!!!  LOL!  I first removed the backgrounds, then the buttons and tiny ribbons. THEN added my own touches like the pearl strings, pearl brads, lots of stickles glitter, ultrafine glitters, Cuttlebugged Diecut flowers, BasicGrey Rhinestones & a ribbon BOW. The BG white PANELS are also dry embossed with various cuttlebug folders.

INK: Pinks Marvy Matchables, Gold Dye (for sponging edges of letters & flowers), Gel Metallic Pens & Markers for inking edges of letters.
PAPER: The PINK glitter panel is foam and the Pink CS is textured Bazzill
ACCESSORIES: Cuttlebug DieCut Flowers, Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Pearl Strings, Gold Pearl Brads, Basic Grey Flower & Flourish Rhinestones, Gold lined, wired Satin Ribbon
Technique: Dry Embossing
