I would be very remiss if I didn't mention that the only way I really figured these techniques out was when AudreyAnn came over to my house this past weekend. I could not figure them out to save my life. She's so good at that kind of thing. So, HERE'S to KITTIE and AUDREYANN - They actually taught zee Fruitcake something!
I used one of my favorite SU sets - Touch of Kindness - colored the image with copics and then applied crystal effects for a nice shine. Used a coordinating looped ribbon, button and the MFT rolled rose diecuts which allowed me to use coordinating cardstock. Used a coule different leaf punches and diecuts and added my MS grass border punch at the bottom. I used dimensionals to lift up the frame over the image, added a sentment with ribbon, bling and paper pierced one of the panels.
Think that's about it. Thanks for taking a look. This is the only Mother's Day card I have left to do - now, onto the dreaded masculine Father's Day cards!
PT: At least 14 and the paper piercing.

Pamzi - this is great. So many cool things on it and great techniques (flowers, framing, and bow stuff). Super colors and everything just works together so well. So glad you had a study partner on the tutorials - I feel the same way you do when I try stuff like that. Wonder if Audzi could come to my house too? LOL! I am going to Carol's house soon and she can show me. So glad we have these gals in our group. Wonderful card and many hugz to you Sis!

Marzi, Punchkateer Apprentice - why use 1 when you can use 2? or 8?

Dear Defender.....what a pretty card. Don't you just love trying new things? All your amazing detail, as usual, just makes your card jump right off the screen.....and your sweet bow is perfect. TFS Pamzi.

...sure itís got a catchy beat, but can you stamp to it?
life is something that happens only when you run out of cardstock

Oh Pam, this is just as pretty as can be! And I agree with Ellen ... you rock the masculine cards, too! I'm kind of dreading tackling the FD cards myself! Hugz! And way to go on that stellar PT!
