Birthday Flossie

The sweet folks over at Mo's Digital Pencil Facebook page have used one of my layouts for their current sketch challenge, so I just had to play along (thanks, Shell & Mo)! This is my first time using one of Mo's images, but definitely not my last. I spent *hours* browsing through her amazing image collection and already can't wait to go shopping again. Some of my favorites are from her Wizard of Oz series -- she captured that silly scarecrow perfectly! He snuck into my cart, you can bet, but for today, I've colored up Birthday Mouse Flossie for my mother, who turns 70 tomorrow - go MOM! I'm not all that crazy about some of my color choices, but that's the nice thing about making card for our mothers - they have to like them. It's a "mom rule," right?

Have an awesome day, friends!

Well, it's not only your Mom who just has to like your cards :-) I'd say that's an "Amy rule" :-)
Happy birthday to your Mom!!

I totally agree with you about
Mo's images-luv 'em.
I like the colors u use on the card-u make the pinks work. I always have the hardest time picking colors.
