JUST US GIRLS! #392 - Word Week

Hello friends and welcome!
It's Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS!
Maria is hosting this week and she wants to see
your creations to honor Mom! Perfect timing
as Mother's Day is approaching. 
Here's what I made:

 Here's the inside:

I used a stencil on the card base going with a tone on tone look in aqua. After I adhered 
the frame die cut, I found some much neglected pink suede flowers and glued them on. I die cut
a flower die, snipped off the leaves and tucked them behind the flowers. Found the
perfect sized Thickers to spell out MOM. A stamped sentiment finishes the inside.

I hope you find some time to play along this week at Just Us Girls! For more
inspiration, please check out what my teammies came up with and leave them some
bloggy lovin. I'd also like to welcome our 
May Guest Designer, Kathie Durgan! 
I'm looking forward to crafting with you this month!
