This a Mother's Day Card I designed for my 2 sisters, my 2 daughters-in-law and my aunt. This card was so much fun to make, because it was the unexpected card w/so much bling. If you would like to know any of the tools I used on it, just comment. This Spellbinders Nestability has become my favorite, it's the Mega oval and the Scalloped Mega oval.
