Mom loves ice cream



     Here I am down to the wire creating my mom's Mother's Day card.  Had a bit of crafty mojo depletion the last few days.  Now you may look at this and think it's a pretty weird image choice for a Mother's Day card, but if you knew just how much my mom LOVES ice cream it wouldn't seem weird at all.  The Stamping Bella Uptown Girl image is even called "Isabella Loves Her Ice Cream".  Substitute my moms name, Mary, and there you go.  LOL
     I've used the new sketch up today at Sketch Saturday and went a bit on the bright side with the papers, mainly because that bottom mat is full of ice cream and popsicles.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
