Yellow Mother's Day

Good morning everyone! Me again with another card. I'm working from home today. The kids are going with my sister later this morning. They are going to go to the Dogwood Festival I believe. This weekend should be a quiet weekend. We have MotoGP motorcycle races and I may go rent the Peanuts movie from Redbox. Other than that.. I'm hoping to color and craft and take it easy :) Have a great Friday everyone and a great rest of your weekend too! See you on Sunday for the next Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenge!

So, yellow is not my favorite color, but this one went yellow. Here is one of my Mother's Day cards:

This image is from Delicious Doodles and was colored with my Prismacolor Pencils. I've used some different patterned papers and card stock and kraft papers. I splattered a bit of yellow paint. I distressed some of the papers edges. I did a bit of dry embossing and inked the top of the embossing on some kraft. I've added buttons and thread as well. The Mom is stamped, as is the Happy Mother's Day on the inside.
