Say Cheese & Welcome

Happy May 1st....

I feel like I just finished making Valentines cards and now I am on to Mother's Day.
My mom is in heaven now, but I wanted to pay tribute to one of the best moms I know...
My Daughter in Love.

This card is on the Words 2 Scrap By blog today, as well as a few others from the Inspiration Team.
Come check out the theme for the challenge this month and play along:

So...are those faces on the card tooooo cute?!?
yes, those are my grandbabies!!!

So, let's make this card:

Sentiment was done on computer, then transfer foil was adhered.
Die cut Stitched Film Strip, spritzed it with irRESISTible Clear spray.
Flowers were die cut and rolled, leaves were punched.
A little red thread in the background as well as a few irRESISTible Pico Wedding Dress dots.
Super easy!!!

Such a lovely idea to include photos on your mother's day card. And the film strip is a super way to have holes. Thanks for joining in at AAA Cards.
