NSD, Hero Arts, We R Memory Keepers

Good morning - National Scrapbooking Day today - and I must thank the scrapbooking industry because without you - cardmaking would be no fun.  You supply us with all that great paper - I must confess - I am a paperaholic.

Today my card is based on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches - hopefully it is not overdone for their challenge - what can I say - I am a paperaholic - and I had this new pad from We R Memory Keepers and these new stamps from Hero Arts that I wanted to try out.  I clear embossed the flowers on top of the patterned paper.  I was going to ink the edges of the flowers so the embossing stood out a little but I am hurrying this morning - I have a baby staying with me and I know she will be waking shortly.

Here is the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. 

Everyone enjoy your day I hope to be creative later today - I want to make a mother's day card for the little one to send her mom - how does purple paint (her Mom's favorite color) sound and either a foot or hand print.
