A Simple Pink and White Mother's Day Card

Oh my goodness I just noticed I have a few new followers.
Welcome and I hope you all enjoy my crafts.
Thanks to all of you who come and check out my little blog.

I have some more thank yous to add today.
Have any of you wondered how I make most of my sweet little ribbon bows?
Well I won this super tool called The Bow Maker on a blog hop in January.
The hop was hosted by Shawn of Crafty Chics Blog
The blog candy was sponsered by Cathy of Creative Cutter Room
Thanks to both of you for this wondefully helpful candy!

Now on to my card...
I wanted to use a few of my embossing folders that I haven't used yet so I just grabbed a few.
My plan was to have a stripe-like effect on the bottom half of my card and a floral design at the top.

Here is my card. Enjoy.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front top embossed with the Cuttlebug Daisy Blast folder.
*Card front bottom embossed with the Sizzix folder (name unknown).
*Mother's Day sentiment form Stampin Up.
*Ribbon from American Crafts.
*Bow and embroidery thread from my stash.
*Bow created using The Bow-Maker

Thanks for checking out my little blog.
