DT for Glitter n Sparkle-Mothers day/womens cards

well its challenge time again over at Glitter n Sparkle and the theme is mothers day/womens cards. i cant wait to see your creations..

the sponsors this week are..

Guylous Inimitability digi stamps who are offering the first winner $10 to spend in store

Daisy Doodles who are offering the second winner 3 digis of their choice

Digi Darlas who are offering the thirsd winner 5 images of their choice 


Sandi's Samples who are offering the fourth winner four images of their choice 

so using Love Frog from Sandie's Samples here is what i made...

to make this i found this card blank ive had for ages with the ribbon holes already cut out.
so i decided to thread some pale green ribbon through it then some cream thin ribbon on top.
i then added green gems to the folds on each ribbon hold.
i coloured the image using promarkers and cut out adding to the card blank.
i then added the 'with love on mothers day' sentiment and added 2 green stars to the top and bottom corner.
i then found a silver corner peel of so used that to make it stand out a bit

i am entering this in to the following challenges:

and using Soccer Mom from Digi Darla's here is what i made..

to make this i covered the card blank with some bronze flower card i then coloured the image using promarkers and added tot he card.
i then found some gold star peel off borders and added them around the image.
i used a bronze floral border along the bottom and added the 'with love on mothers day' sentiment with a gold gem in the top and bottom corner
