Whoa - what a broad challenge! I didn't quite know where to start, and was majorly tempted to make something with one of my fab-o flowers a la Joanne Leddy, but I instead opted to pare it back to basics, and go with a super-simple stamped image.
I'm not sure if the cards for the JAI challenge are meant to be specifically for Mother's Day ... hopefully this qualifies, because I think my little (rather Parisienne) girl is rather sweet. This is one of my non-Stampin' Up! images that I coloured while we were away at our cabin over Easter.
