Happy Mothers Day
Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers that read my blog. It is just another Sunday around here because I think everyday is mothers day and I don't want to do anything special. Days like this make me even more grateful to have a wonderful daughter and mother though.
This is the card I made for my mom. I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch week 36. This is the first time I have ever done one of her sketches. I have wanted to do one for a while now but did not have the time. Hopefully I will have time to do more of them in the future now.
I started off by stamping the flowers from The Angel Company with Palette Noir black ink on Papertrey stampers select white cardstock and then colored it in with my Copic sketch markers. After that I matted it on SU Night of Navy cardstock. I used my plain and scalloped circle Nestabilities to create the flower for the sentiment and then stamped the Happy Mothers Day saying on it in Night of Navy ink. Sentiment is from the Pond Life set from Papertrey. The cardstock on the left is SU ballet blue and was embossed with the cuttlebug dots folder. The cardstock on the right and the bottom of the flower is from the Kimberly Hodges Designer paper pack that I had gotten from my local Scrapbook store a few years ago. The ribbon is SU 1/4 grosgrain white ribbon colored with a vermilion copic sketch marker to match the paper. I finished the card off by matting it with SU Summer Sun cardstock. I know Daisy's are my mom's favorite flower and her favorite color is blue so I hope she likes it. She is coming by in a little bit so I can give it to her. I also made her something else as well but I am going to wait until Tuesday to show it to you because I am entering it in this months Papertrey contest too. That's it for now. I hope you all have a great day.
