Mother's Day at AiFactory!

Welcome to my weekly AiFactory post! This week we're working with Mother's Day images. The team has been divided into 3 groups. I've got a pretty flower to use for my project. We've also been asked to participate in at least one other challenge. Twist my arm, why don't you!!

You guys are really going to laugh at me. You would not believe the hours I spent looking through my stamps to find a Mother's Day sentiment. I mean really, if you had any idea just how many stamps I have, rubber, clear and digital, you would be shocked that it took me so long. And, of all things, it was finally a Stampin' Up set that came to the rescue. It was literally on the other side of my house from everything that I use on a regular basis. I had to dust them off to look through those sets. Whatever, right? It worked!!

So, for challenges, I started off by checking out the current colour challenges. Color Throwdown #87 caught my eye. Pink, grey and soft olive. Those sounded like good colours for a Mother's Day card. Then I saw Belli Challenge #88 - use some type of colour spray. I did this one last week (it's a biweekly challenge) when I used my Copic Airbrush system to recolour a button. This time, I thought I remembered having some grey Glimmer Mist. Woohoo! Yup, it's in the drawer! Awesome! While I was checking out the week's challenges, I came across The Pink Elephant. Challenge #61 is Nature. I think my flower counts.

There was another one I found last night (Wednesday) that called for something glittery or glimmery, but heck if I remember what it was. If anyone knows, I'd really appreciate it if you'd drop me a reminder.

BTW, because I had such a hard time with my sentiment, my original card was scrapped and turned into this ATC. I think it's kinda cute. The grey, when done in glimmer mist, ends up kind of silver, but I like it that way. The ink is Ranger Watermelon. The lighter pink didn't show up at all. So this is ATC #2. Sometimes is just happens that way.
Check out the rest of the DT's work (links are on the left sidebar) and then be sure to play along. Link your creation to the AiFactory Challenge Blog post for this week and you could win 2 of the 4 images shown on the blog as well as a chance to be a guest DT!! You have until 10:30 EST on April 14 (that's next Wednesday.) Good luck!!
