My 115th post...Oh goodness!!

Wow, this has gone FAST~~ I never realized until just now when I went onto my Dashboard and saw this will be #115!! I have TOTALLY enjoyed blogging, and hope to get to do it for a long time!! I have a Blogaversary coming up soon, and will do a FUN SUMMER BLOG CANDY!! I have so much fun visiting everyone, and even more fun when you all visit me!! Your lovely comments just make my day!! Ok, enough hooie....
This is a Mother's Day Card I have made for one of my Grandmas. I used the Sketch Saturday Sketch #48, and love how it turned out.
We had an overcast day today, so this isn't as vibrant in the picture as it is IRL. I used a base of Old Olive. The image is from SU Beautiful Blossoms, and is colored with watercolor crayons and shimmer paints. I used a couple of layers cut with my MS Edge Punch, and bronze ribbon for the layers. I thought something was needed in the corners, so I made the corner decorations with the punch, as well, so it would all co-ordinate. The 2 maroon cardstocks are from my stash, and the Bronze I made with Glimmer paints. I am thrilled, and I think it is a classy look for Grandma.
I actually did a couple more Mother's Day cards for a swap today, but will have to post those tomorrow. It is past my bedtime...5:30 a.m. comes too darned early!! I hope everyone had a FABBY weekend, even if it was TOO SHORT!! Have a great Monday and thanks for stopping by!
Rubber Hugs,

Wow Julie, this is a very "classy" looking card. I'm a grandma and I think it is just beautiful and I'm sure your grandma will too!
