A Flower for Mom

We're half way through another week. It's funny that as the weather gets nicer it's harder and harder to stay inside and work on projects when we can be outside soaking in the long awaiting warm weather. I definately decided to take inspiration from the spring flowers for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge.

I started with a piece of Sweet Pea DSP that was sitting on my desk and created this card around this great design. The card base is So Saffron and the the designer paper is matted on a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock. I used a piece of Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon along the right side of the card and tied a big, fat bow on top. I decided to use the Messages for Mom stamp set (I can't believe this was the first time I had inked it up). The letters are stamped with Chocolate Chip ink on So Saffron cardstock. I cut out each of the letters with Paper Snips so they could run down the side of the card and each was popped up with dimensionals. Then I used the flower stamp and stamped it with Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White cardstock before mounting it on a piece of Old Olive cardstock. The flowers were colored in with Old Olive, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, and Regal Rose Stampin' Write markers.

I finished the inside of the card by stamping "Happy Mother's Day" in the center in Chocolate Chip and used the flower image in the top left and bottom right corners in Old Olive.

I love how this card turned out and think any mom would love to receive it (hopefully my mom isn't looking at this post). Enjoy the rest of the week and soak up all the nice weather.
