Crepe Paper Fun

This is my second post for today so scroll down for the PWCO creation.

I made another Mother's Day card using some cool paper from K&Co called Poppy Seed.  I was only $2 for a mat pack.  I just can't pass that up.  I loved the colors in it.  My card today is for a few challenges.

Here's a bit about my card.  I made my flower using crepe paper and added some stickles to it.  I also added stickles to my main image panel that uses 2 different Verve sets.  My ribbon is my handmade crinkle ribbon and it is NOT crooked even thought it looks like it in the photo.  I used a few scraps of paper and an EK success border punch .  I am in love with the soft feel of this card.
 
I'm off to finish getting some last minute stuff for my sister's wedding.  I have to tell you that today my hair is looking better.  NO Justine...I will not post pictures.  There will be enough of those without putting them on the web.  I have to tell you though that I was cracking myself up yesterday ( Yes, I am my biggest fan) just thinking about how my husband will look at me and then pull his head back like WHOA when he sees my hair.  It reminded me of the scene from the movie "Ghost."  Do you remember the part where Whoopi Goldberg is performing a seance for the black family?  Sam comes in to warn Whoopi she is in trouble and the black man (forget his name) "hops" into Whoopi's body.  He has a hard time seeing his family and his wife is sitting at the table.  He says, " Morticia?? I'm having a hard time seeing you."  Then BAM he can see her and he says," Damn Baby!  What you do to yo hair?!"  and she says as she is patting the ends, " Why, ( whatever his name is), it's Autumn Sunrise.  Do you like it?"   Hee Hee....that is what keeps running through my head when my husband looks at me like that..." Damn Baby!  What you do to yo hair?"  It wasn't  called Autumn sunrise, but it's close:)  Ok, pardon me swearing on here, but "darn" just doesn't have the same affect.

Hope you laugh today!
