Mother's Day card Using NEW CTMH Skylark Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

DT Project for Digi Stamps 4 Joy  - Challenge 86 - Dies and/or Punches

Hello friends.  It is another beautiful day in Southern CA.  I hope everyone is having better weather now; than earlier this year.  I heard that it was warming up and snow melting across the US. We didn't have a winter here this year; and only one day of rain.  We still need rain; as there is a water shortage.  

You have one more week to enter Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Challenge 86 - Dies and/or Punches.  This is a fun challenge; as you can use a lot of dies on one card; or get those punches out and have fun!  I just bought a bunch of new dies; and have been having a great time using them to create.  Be sure to check out the other Design team creations.  We have Team A; which is on the link above and Team B should be under the Home section; just under the Sunday New Release post.

Inside Card using CTMH Skylark paper pack - Isn't this gorgeous!
I stamped the extra two bird outlines on left, Lots of Love, Sending You Sunshine, the envelope and the heart border.
