Mothers are the ultimate "multi-taskers" with their busy lives!  They have to be to get everything done and still have a moment to breathe!

This card is sort of a visual statement of that fact!

I started with Colonial White.  The 2nd layer is a quilt made by weaving together 8 strips of paper from CTMH Hopscotch and CTMH Fundamentals.

Over that I made a fan of 4 pieces of CS with the top piece of the fan being a mom looking so stellar!

Laces, flowers, washi tape, a sequin, pearl and button embellish the card.  
Yeah, that's a mom's life, alright!  Lots of things to do, but in the end it's all tied up nicely in a bow looking all neat and pretty!


This card is off to the following challenges:

Heart 2 Heart:  Mum's the Word
