First I am glad to say that my mother doesn't know about this blog so she will still be surprised by this card I will send to her for Mother's Day. She will be even more surprised when she sees how atypical it is. No flowers, no sappy sentiment, no pink.
I found this super-de-duper sketch challenge from Cards & Things Challenge #116. Since I am depleting my stash, I fell in love with this sketch. I was able to use 6 different strips of patterned papers. I also use these same strips on the inside of the card.
