I am posting my Inventory Challenge card a day early because I have yet to figure out how to schedule a post for a later date.  Any helpers out there?
Charlie is coming home and we are packing up the car to go see my MOM for the weekend!  After posting my Mother's Day card last week I felt a strong pull towards her and so did my husband.  He hasen't seen Mom since Dad's funeral a year ago and I only saw her for about an hour when we met my sister and her 1/2 way between Kansas and St. Louis, Missouri for lunch. 
This week's card involved making one with just a phrase on the front and a sentiment.  WHAT?  No Maggies?  What will I ever do? lol
What I did was to take a dry embossing folder and emboss the upper left hand corner.  It needed some 'pretties' so I added some white pearls to the flower centers.  I felt it needed a little something more so I included a blue swiss dotted bow.  I hope you enjoy my card!  On to load up the car.  Happy Memorial Day to those who celebrate this holiday.  Just remember what it really stands for.  I have included a list on my partners in crimes blog addresses so you can take a look see!  Enjoy!  Love, Elle
