Happy Monday Y'all! I hope your weekend was everything you hoped for and for all of the Mom's out there, I hope your Mom's Day was the best ever!
This week on the Our Craft Lounge Blog we were challenged "Pin It" which means we were to create a card that was inspired by something from Pinterest. If you don't know what Pinterest is, it is a virtual cork board that you can pin things to while you are surfing the net. If you haven't signed up yet and need an invite, let me know and I will send you one. You will be hooked!
My card was inspired by the card shown below. I fell in love with the layout of this card as soon as I saw it and knew it would be perfect for this challenge as it is a layout I could use over and over and create a different look each time. I added a few more flags, used butterflies in place of the buttons and twine instead of the stitching . I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Our Craft Lounge Big Birthday Wishes set.
