Happy mother’s day

Hi everyone! I’m baaaaack! Thanks for hanging with me – this is my last post for tonight but I’ll be back with a couple more tomorrow. I’m so glad that I decided to set time aside these last couple days to create cards for The Outlawz Challenges because I didn’t get a chance to play much at all last month. The card I’m sharing now is for the Color Challenge and our sponsor this month is SheepSki Designs. I chose the gorgeous Wild Roses image from my stash to create a Mother’s Day card.


The colors for the challenge are burgundy, green, yellow, pink, purple and white plus a twist. This is our photo inspiration:

I used all the colors and my twist is CAS (clean and simple). I fussy cut the image and added a few dots of white Crystal Drops for a little texture. I stamped the sentiment in black ink.


I embellished the inside panel with a strip of the burgundy cardstock used to layer the front and inside panels, and then stamped the sentiment in black ink. The stamp set is from The Project Bin and contains both fun and serious sentiments.


And one more look… all I can say is love, love, love! Beautiful image and fun challenge!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
