MCT Thrifty Thursday

Hi! Today is Thrifty Thursday over at My Creative Time...the day where we challenge ourselves to use up some of our scraps we have accumulated!  

I made a Mother's Day card using all scraps except for the background paper!  :)  

I have to tell you that I totally scrap-lifted this from my DT sister Kim. The minute I saw her card I fell in love with it and knew I wanted to make one!  You can see her original card HERE!  

The window was cut out with my Cameo....I couldn't find a window cut I liked so I designed my was super simple....a rectangle with 4 squares inside! :)   For the flowers I used MCT's Stitched Button Dies. The Sentiment is from the More Chocolate Greetings set and the banner that  I stamped it on is from the Chocolate Greetings stamp set.  I inked up the edges of everything with TH distress ink and added a few butterflies from a MS punch.  

As always, 
thanks so much for stopping by! :)
