Getting some 'Zing' into a Mothers day card!

Well Hello! It's Anice here and it's my turn to share with you my Zing into Spring card entry..I have to admit I was a little concerned that my card wasn't 'zingy' enough but I think Spring is about lots of things and I thought well, it's about new beginnings as well so who needs thanking more than your Mom for your new beginning? So I've gone for this Mothers day card..

This card was created using papers, a digital image and the sentiment writer from my latest craft CD ROM Craft the Year Away. Oh and some truly wonderful inch wide ribbon from my stash! Thank goodness for our craft stashes eh? We buy all these wonderful items because they catch our eye but then can't bring ourselves to use them because they are 'too nice'..now don't kid me..you do it, we all do!! (I have a ridiculously large brad collection.. really large and then I scratch around for a brad at times because the others 'are too good to use'! Oh, who knows maybe it's just me..but I don't think so! HeHe!)

I'm not giving you huge details about how I made this card because I plan to make a video tutorial, for on my website, using this card so keep your eyes here and on my blog and I'll let you know when you can get a closer look at how I created this card.

I hope you are being inspired to join our Get Funky! Challenge this month.
