Mother's Day Card Using Doodle Pantry Flower Hats Digi and Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

Hello fellow crafters.  I hope everyone is doing well.  Hopefully spring will be here soon for most of the US.  We never had a cold winter in Southern CA this year; and it has been unusually hot.  It has been a tough winter for a lot of the US and many continued to have snow in April.  

It is time for another fabulous challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox Challenge 69 - Mother's Day. This one should be an easy one.  You can create a card for any mother, your daughter, your daughter in law, your grandmother, your mother or any other mother that you know.  Our sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry.  Be sure to check out their fabulous Digital images on their blog.

I decided to use Doodle Pantry Floral Hats Color Plus on my card this week.  I thought these hats were so adorable.  There are two colored hats, black and white hats, papers and sentiments to go with them.  I used the "Hats Off To You" sentiment on the front and "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment on the inside.  I went through my stash and found paper with matching colors to create this card.  I hope you enjoy it.

For both sentiments and hat

Inside card - Yellow is actually a lighter color than shown here.

Supplies used to create this card:

Rectangles - Nellie's Frames Straight Rectangles

Cardstock - CTMH Blush, White Daisy and Buttercup
Design Paper - K & Company Susan Winget
Ribbon - American Crafts
Bling - Recollections
