Mother's Day Card Challenge - Vote for your favorite

I made this card for the Mother's Day Card Challenge at Paper Garden.  They are a Canadian company. You can check them and their products by following the link above.

I started with their Aura Haviland Blue Linen card stock.  I then cut the Spellbinder A2 Ribbon Threader die from their Esse Pearlized White card stock.  The designer paper layer is from the Recollections series from Michaels.  I cut the piece 3 1/8 inches x 3 3/8 inches and adhered it above the slits in the die cut.  I then selected a green seam binding ribbon which coordinated with the green in the designer paper.  I wrapped it around the back of the diecut and pulled it through the ribbon threader slots till they met in the middle then I tied it into a nice bow.  I trimmed the ends at a slant with scissors.   The greeting was designed with a small oval frame Label 2 from the Stampin Up Noteworthy Labels stamp set in Certainly Celery.  The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set.  This was put onto another piece of the Pearlized White card stock and trimmed by hand.  I distressed the edges and adhered it above the bow with 3D foam tape. The full threader layer was then adhered to the blue card front.    I cut a blue flower from the scrap of designer paper and adhered it in the top right hand corner of the card with 3D foam tape.

Check out the all the cards and vote for your favorite.

Here's a scan of the several sheets of card stock that Paper Garden sent me to make a card for their challenge.  My mom's favorite color is blue so I chose the blue linen and white pearl paper. I will be able to make several more cards with rest.  Thanks Tiffany for the card stock.
