SSINKspiration Mystery Challenge #SSINKMC32: Crazy About You

Good morning!  What a beautiful weekend, we were busy as usual but enjoyed being able to enjoy the nice weather throughout everything.  Today over on the SSINKspiration blog it's time for this months Mystery Challenge and we were given another fun list of items to see what we could come up with, I was able to incorporate 4 items (1, 3, 5, 6).  We made this beautiful Mother's Day card earlier this month, and while it's a little over the top it was fun and certainly a hit. 

I started with Sahara Sand cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Whisper White cardstock for the cardfront.  I cut a circle out of Vellum cardstock using the Big Shot and Circles Collection framelits and then embossed it with the Zig Zag Embossing Folder and then sponged all over it with Mint Macaron ink.  I used two pieces of coordinating DSP from the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper.

For the flowers they were a breeze using the Big Shot and the Botanical Builders Framelits using Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I did add some sponging to the flowers using Cajun Craze ink and Mossy Meadow ink to the leaves.  I added pearls to the small flowers and a Metal Rimmed Pearl to the center of the large flower.

For the greeting I used the Crazy About You stamp set and coordinating framelits and cut the "happy" out of Basic Black cardstock.  The "Mother's Day' was punched out with the Washi Label Punch, sponged around the edge with Mossy Meadow ink, and then attached with dimensionals. The final touch was to add a knot tied using Mint Macaron Lace Trim.

This card has so much texture and dimension, it really is stunning and you can certainly change up the greeting for whatever you need.  Make sure to check out what the other designers are sharing for this challenge and then play along and share your creations, we would love to see them!
