Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge #28

Good morning!!  It's time for a new challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio.  I'm excited to share my creations with you for this challenge.  Since Mother's Day is fast approaching, we would like to see what you're making.  So, here are the 2 cards I made.
For the first one, I used on of my most favorite stamps from Michelle Perkett, Enchanted Slumber.  I just love this stamp.  I colored the image with Stampin' Up Watercolor Wonder Crayons.  The DP is scraps from another project and the flowers and brads are from my stash.  The sentiment is The WildFlower Patch.

Here's a close-up of the image.  Isn't it just sweet?

For my nex card I used the new image Thanks Mum that was released a couple of days ago in Michelle's store.
I colored this image with Marvy markers.  Isn't it a great image?  It reminds me of moments with my daughters.  The DP is from my stash.  The ribbon I found at a local scrapbook store.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Here are some views of the inside.
For the left inside panel I used an image that was a freebie on Michelle's PCP page for reaching 300 members.  I actually has a Thank You sentiment with it, but for my card I just used the flowers.  It is also colored with Marvy markers.
Here is the whole inside of the card.  There's a surprise hidden in there somewhere.  Would you like to see it?  I thought you might.
The middle panel opens up to reveal a surprise.  I got the idea for this hidden panel card from Barbara here on her blog.  If you look under the archive in April you will find the 2 tutorials for this card.  On the tutorial she shows how to make this card with a 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 in cs, I used 5 1/2 X 12 in cs to make it come out to be 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 in without adding panels.  Just score at the 6 in mark and then 4 1/4 in in from each end.  Isn't it a fun card.  The flower and butterfly stamps are from Studio G.

Thanks for taking a look.  I hope you'll join us for this weeks challenge.  Have a great day.
