SOG: A Challenge for the Moms!

Hi all,

It has been a fortnight, so we are super excited to bring you another challenge on the Some Odd Girl blog!  We had some lovely entries for the CAS challenge 2 weeks ago (Clean and Simple), and this time, we are challenging you to make a mom project.  You can make a Mother's Day card (which would be handy, considering it is fast approaching!), or you can make a card for an expectant mother, or a new mother, etc.
Ode to moms!

*Hint: Kristy just had the most amazing release on the 19th of April in the SOG Store, so I would check out those images, because I have a feeling you will find something perfect for our theme this week!

Here's mine:
My card is actually CAS again this week, but that was purely coincidental :-)
My card base is Sage Shadow, and on top of that is a PTI White piece with a black mat.  The white piece was stamped with a large cloud stamp from Flourishes in Bashful Blue ink - I think it is so yummy. 
I also attached a strip of Bashful Blue CS, punched with the Martha Stewart lace edge punch, and on top of that is another white strip (embossed with the Cuttlebug Mesh folder) and a black mat.  I tied some Bashful Blue Taffeta ribbon in a knot around that strip.
The entiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink at the top - the stamp is from Verve, and I added some Iconz rhinestones beside 2 of the lines. 

This ADORABLE image is called Tiny Baby Bottle, and s/he was released on April 19 - I think it's the cutest baby ever.  Look at that funny little curl of hair at the top! Ha!
I printed that onto PTI White CS, coloured it with Copics, cut it out with a thin white border, and mounted it on with foam dots.  I used some soft blues and greens, so I guess you would assume the baby is a boy, but when I started out, I wanted it to be gender-neutral.  Oh well!

Copics used:
*Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, YR00
*Diaper: C00, C1
*Eyes: B32, B34, B37
*Hair: *E13, E17, E19
*Bottle: E30, E31, E33, E37; C00, C1

Make sure you head on over to the SOG blog to submit your "mother" creation.  Since it's the second challenge of the month, you are not required to use an SOG digi, although it makes us uber-happy when you do!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
