This is definitely a use your scraps up project I found on youtube. The pattern paper is from an old Martha Stewart mat pack. The card stock is all new. I put tea bag distress ink all over it, thats new, just got it a few days ago. The buttons are from my stash. The sentiment is from Studio G, one of the first stamps I got, I have had it for about 5 years so definitely one of my stash. 
Hubby didnt like it, said it was too dark for a Mothers day card, unless your Morticia Addams. I want to go back to the days when he said oh thats nice honey, to everything I made lol.
