All Occasion / CTO #112

I hope all of my friends who are Mom's were able to enjoy a wonderful Mother's Day!!!

I had a lovely weekend with my Mom. On Saturday my Mom and my sister and I went out to lunch and had an enjoyable afternoon together. On Sunday I made my Mom a cherry pie and a big, yummy salad, my Dad grilled steaks and we had a super Mother's Day dinner. My daughter came from San Francisco, which was a real treat!!!

Anyway.. on to business, since it is Tuesday we have a new challenge over at Celebrate The Occasion. This week the challenge is called May Flowers and we are asking you to create a project with 3 flowers, 2 buttons and 1 ribbon.

I decided to make an "All Occasion" card this week and to NOT use a sentiment. I've actually not made a sentimentless card before. I think with all the sentiment stamps that most of us have it is hard for us to not throw one on a card, but I curbed my desire to do that and kept my card plain.

I used a Silhouette Studio cut file for my card. Popped on a couple tiny, yellow buttons on my purple flowers and tied a purple ribbon around the front and I was done. Simple, yet pretty.

Supplies used: card stock - recycled white, 2 shades of green, 2 shades of purple, 2 shades of pink; Silhouette Studio cut file; buttons - my stash; ribbon - Michaels.

Beautiful card !! The fact that you did not use a sentiment does NOT detract from its charm. Great Job.
