My First Tilda!! For Mother's Day!

Hi everyone! This is my second post this weekend so I am truly on a roll.  I wonder if it is considered a crafting faux pas to take a picture of the inside of a card AFTER you have signed it? Hey, don't judge me, LOL, I was running out of time! This card is for my mom, and it is my very first Tilda. I used the new sketch at The Sweet Stop and my card went together super easy. The patterned papers on the inside are from the awesome Bearly Mine Designs. The paper, that I added the sentiment to, is called a card insert.  Already decorated with a space for you to write or add what ever sentiment you wish.  It truly adds a finished look and is so easy with her papers.  She has just added her new May freebies to her site, go check her out! I have also purchased two of her cd's and wow!!
