A Dragonfly Mother's Day

I have another Mother's Day card to share with you today.
I fell in love with this paper pad a few weeks ago at Joanns.
I didn't get it then because I put myself on a paper time out but I have been thinking about it ever since.
Today when my husband and I were at Joanns getting Cricut cutting mats with 50% off coupons I saw that it was on sale for 50% off. I can use my teacher's discount for additional saving so I took myself off time out and just went ahead and got the paper.
I used one of the sheets of paper for today's card and will be using other sheets for future cards. Stay tuned. This sheet has these flowers in the corner and the rest of the page is the blue spot paper I used for the strip. Blue, purple, pink... I love the wonderful spring colors in this pad.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front 4 x 4 in.
*Card front strip 1.25 x 4 in.
*Ticket die cut from the My Creative Time Stitched Fun Ticket Dies set.
*Happy Mother's Day sentiment from the Verve Stamps Happy Phrases set.
*Dragonflies cut at 4 and 5 in. from the Cricut Kate's ABCs cartridge.
*Rhinestones from Joanns.
*American Craft ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by.
