Mothers Day

Here is one of the cards I made for Mothers Day. I love it when a card just happens on it's own! I used Bud Basics (pg 78) and Basics Outline wheel (pg 78) for this one. I fell in love with this set at a class that Marelle had a while ago. I used the wheel with a Basic Black cartridge to create the outlines for the flowers and leaves on Whisper White cardstock. Another thing I love is how well the In Colors coordinate with each other! I've used Wild Wasabi for the leaves, Soft Sky for the large flowers and Blue Bayou for the small flowers, don't they look like they were made for each other! I tied Whisper White grosgrain ribbon around the Whisper White cardstock and then mounted that onto Blue Bayou cardstock using my SNAIL adhesive™. I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Thanks set (pg 82) in Blue Bayou ink and used the Mat Pack to do the paper piercing and faux stitching. Finally, I stamped the flowers and leaves onto my envelope.

I had quite a nice Mothers day; church in the morning, help from my husband with the washing, a new jacket and a picnic lunch with friends. I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day too!
