'I Love You Mom' card

My mom loves to quilt (and is amazing at it!!) so when I saw this diecut on the Country Life cart, I knew I would make it into her mother's day card!  She's always creating special quilts for us and our boys, we treasure them as I know how much hard work goes into it - they are wonderful heirlooms that we'll always have that she made especially for us!

I was having issues with my E2, this was the first project I made with it and they just weren't layering very well - I think it was user error because now that I've adjusted the paper settings, it seems to be fine!  But I like the slightly "off" look, makes me think of an old quilt that's been shown some love and used a lot!  :-)
I used a Martha Stewart punch, DCWV cardstock from the 'Amber Autumn' stack, American Crafts ribbon, Stampin Up ink to ink the edges and a sentiment stamp from Pink By Design 'Our Mothers' set.

I'm submitting this card for the Sew Easy challenge at Getting Cricky with K Andrew - she has challenges every other Sunday and such inspirational posts!  Stop by her blog and say hi!
