Meljens Designs Challenge #158.

It's Thursday!! And that means it is the start of a new challenge over at Meljens Designs. This week we have Challenge #158 - What's The Point (use something with a point: stars, arrows, pins, etc).



I used the awesome Mama Whale digital stamp from Meljen's Designs for this card. I thought it would be the perfect image for a Mother's Day card for my mother. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils. I used stamps from My Thoughts Exactly Under The Sea (You're Whale-y Great), StudioG (Arrow), Unknown (Brackets) and Hero Arts PolyClear (Happy Mother's Day). I added the paper flowers. I added gems to the arrow. This is all cardstock paper and I sewed them to add to the card. I love the look of sewing on cards! I decorated the inside of the card as well and that's it.

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week! This week has been really busy, but much better than last week. And it's almost over. I wish our weekends were a little bit longer! LOL I think I need to take a couple of days off.. just to take some time off! Hmmm.. that sounds good hehehe Alright... I'm off :)  Have a happy day!!!

Susan,
This is such a different card for Mothers Day and just what we asked for over at My Sheri Crafts this time. Thanks for linking up.

Your colouring is great, it will stand out on the mantle piece.
