MSC - Happy Mother's Day

Dear Ones~
Happy May Day!! It's finally here, and the snow here in Northern Michigan is finally gone. It's my turn to host the challenge over at The Mod Squad, and I have chosen to make a Mother's Day Card.

Gina’s goal is to continue to offer top quality signature products through her online store Gina K. Designs along with informative and creative crafting videos.Be sure to check out StampTV for a ton of great videos and techniques. They also have weekly challenges. Shop Gina K Designs.
Gina K. has been in the stamping industry since 1998 and started Gina K. Designs in 2007. As the business grew, Gina asked her husband Tom to leave his position as an attorney to join her in the business. Together they built StampTV, their online video website featuring broadcast quality paper crafting videos, galleries, social network for paper crafters and more! Gina now has over 200,000 followers over her various social media networks and video sites from all around the world.

Here is the card I have created for the challenge:
For this card I used a Gina K Designs stamp set by Claire Brennan called Springtime Baskets. I colored it with some Copics. Card stocks used were GKD Black Onyx, Lemon Drop, Turquoise Sea and White Layering Weight. I also used GKD Black Amalgam Ink. My mom is no longer with me, but I have a dear friend who's mom is special to me. This will be going to her. Don't you just love that little bee?

GKD Black Onyx, Lemon Drop, Turquoise Sea & White Card Stock
Pebbles Garden Party Patterned Paper
Studio 8 Mary & Company Patterned Paper
GKD Springtime Baskets Stamp Set
