One for the Ladies ~ Sweet Stamps Challenge 10

Good morning, I would like to share with you my DT card that I've made for Sweet Stamps for Challenge # 10 and our  theme for this week is 
One for the ladies..  
We would like to see all your girlie cards and projects so 
Head over to 
to join in the fun and enter.  The prize this week is...
a $20.00 spending spree in the 
Its a little Aladdin's cave of crafting goodies there is everything from stamps, copics, dies and lots lots more. 

I know you are probably looking at this and thinking "We've had Mothers day already" but over in the States Mothers day is still to come (May 8th) so I've decided to celebrate Mothers day twice this year.  
I've made my card quite simple this week, I was going to add more embellies.  Not sure if you're like me or not but I place different elements on my project and move them around until I'm happy with it.  I did this with this card and it just looked to full and it detracted the beauty of this wonderful stamp.  

I paper pieced with all those scraps that we all keep and never know why, I have draws full of odd bits of paper that I tend to keep for never.  The only time I used copic's was for the stems. 

So there you have it, my sample project for Sweet Stamps..
