Flowers and Spiders

I'm determined to get my Just Add Ink entry in on time this week!  The challenge is Just Add a Flower.  I've combined it with this week's Wee Memories challenge which is paper piecing.
Hero Arts has so many big layered flower images that are great for paper piecing.  I used some My Mind's Eye paper that came free with a magazine (whoo hoo for freebies!).  I thought it was a bright and colourful mom-esque card so I added mom sentiment.  I had fun with the bling too.  :)  
Supplies: PP: My Mind's Eye; Stamps: HA, Elzybells, Inks: VersaFine Onyx Black, Palette Jardin Moss; Bling: Doodlebug
Remember that big ole' wolf spider I mentioned in this post?  Well, his much smaller brother came to visit and this time I got a picture. 
This dude was about half the size of the last one and a lot faster.  He got away from me before I could relocate him outside.  Guess that means I'll be seeing him again at some point...

What a gorgeous mother's day card. Your paper piecing is perfect. Please don't tell me this spider is in your house. I don't think I would be able to sleep until he is found!

Bling is good, the spider, hmm, not so good in my world! Thanks for asking about me, I've just returned from a trip to see my baby nephew! No time to craft at all!

Eeek! (spider reaction). Eeek! (card reaction). The paper piecing is super!! Love the color combo--the blue bling is a great color element!

OK, first off, gorgeous card! I love those paper pieced flowers, and the little bit of bling.

second, I got chills when I saw that photo. I agree with Brandi, there is no way I could sleep until I knew where that thing was! :)

Ewwww!!! Is that spider really as big as I think it might be? :S The only time I saw a cockroach so big that it sounded like it was wearing clogs was on my trip to Costa Rica. It's body was the size of my palm. Yuck!

I love your card though! The colours and layers are so pretty!! I don't own any of those large Hero Arts flowers and I desperately want some now.
