One Final Mother's Day Card
I'm finishing up some final preparations for Mother's Day tomorrow. After I get this posted, I need to go wrap some gifts and write out some cards. I based this (what I hope is my final Mother's Day card for this year) on The Shabby Tea Room's inspiration photo:
We also needed to use the colors in the photo, and a rose. I was really inspired by the pitcher, I wanted to include something like that in my card. I decided to use a doily that I spritzed with gold glimmer mist and then stamped a flourish stamp in Hollyhock. I also was inspired by the blue magazines, so I used a pretty blue patterned paper that also picked up on the touches of brown. The green seam binding is my nod at the green in the foliage, so I opted to tuck my rose in the bow.
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the blue print for my card:
Also, this week at the Ribbon Carousel, the challenge is "Word to Your Mother".
