Think To Remember Card

~ Happy Mother's Day ~

Howdy!  I hope this post finds you well, and happy! {smile}  Me, YeS!  I have made several cards for today, for some very special ladies, and today's post isn't any different.  This card is for my daughter.  She is a very good mom to her children.  
I used the current sketch from Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge to create a card for my daughter.  The sketches here are easy to work with, and the design team will certainly inspire you.  

My daughter isn't a shabby chic enthusiast like her mom.  She is more of a clean and simple gal, with a modern twist.  So, I wanted to make her card in a style she would love.  I picked up some (new to me) pattern paper at my local scrapbook store, and set out to make her a card she would love. {smile}
this is what I came up with:

Recipe:  I used Pool Party card stock from Stampin' Up! for the card base.  I thought it matched the light blue in the chevron striped paper.  I used three different pattern papers from the Think To Remember collection by Photo Play Paper Co.  I just loved the mix of patterns: bold stripes, chevron, and a pretty floral pattern.
I used the Tasteful Trim die (retired) by Stampin' Up! to create the large scallop piece.  I wrapped some pale pink seam binding around the card front and added a multi-loop bow.  I positioned a fabric covered brad just below the bow.  (the fabric is navy blue, with a light blue circle and tiny rhinestones on the light blue circle)
I stamped the sentiment in Not Quite Navy classic ink (retired) onto a scrap piece of whisper white card stock, both from Stampin' Up!.  I used a photo corner punch to create the banner ends.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front with foam tape.
At the top of this beautiful floral pattern paper, I added a trio of buttons.  A large navy blue button, a pale pink button, and finally a light blue blossom shaped button.  I wanted to repeat those three colors that I used on this card.  
I also finished the inside:

I have started 'finishing' the insides of my cards lately.  I'm not sure what started this habit, but I really like who 'finished' the cards become.  I cut a piece of Marina Mist card stock, by Stampin' Up!, for the matt.  I added a piece of whisper white card stock for the main panel, and then I added two scrap pieces of the pattern paper at the bottom.  Simple, sweet, and super pretty.  {I have since added a hand-written message}

Thank you for looking, and I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!
