Challenge #209 at Meljen's Designs.

Good morning everyone!!! And a Happy Thursday to everyone as well! I love Thursday!! It is my Friday... well almost! I still work on Fridays, but in my pjs LOL  I'm recovering from a stomach bug or something from yesterday... got me up in the wee hours of the morning. Feeling better though and back to work! I think hubby gave it to me!! LOL  But I still love him  :)  I hope you all have a great rest of your week! It's almost the weekend!!!

This Thursday we begin Challenge #209 at Meljen's Design and our theme this week is 'MOM'! And I didn't have any Mother's Day cards left, so I have been trying to work on my stash!  This definitely helps!!  Here is what I came up with for this challenge:







For this challenge I used Seahorse Love -- which you can find at the Meljen's Designs Shop. I printed the image on Kraft paper and colored it with my Prismacolor Pencils. I added some pearls on the image and some pink pearls around the flowers. I added the flowers and leaves. For You Mom! was stamped as is the Happy Mother's Day on the inside and the XheartX on the right side. I added three gems on the front sentiment as well. I inked around the edge of the image, which was cut with a Spellbinders die cut. I used some pink ink to match everything.
