Mother's Day 2010

A belated Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there! This was my Mother's Day card for this year. I used Insightful Meadows (Unity) for the flowers, and the sentiment is from Lizzie Anne Designs. The Fabriano card stock gives such a nice richness, and I added Flower Soft for a realistic flower look (the next best thing to the real thing).

Stamps: Insightful Meadow (Unity), Wonderful Mother (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Fabriano
Ink: Forest Moss Distress Ink (Ranger)
Accessories: Baby Pink Flower Soft, PVA Glue (Flower Soft), Silk Ribbon (from Sharon Johnson's Store)


It was raining and nasty around here on Friday, so I decided to take my daughter to the Great Lakes Mega Meet. I was able to pick up a few goodies, and I also had the opportunity to see Tim Holtz work his magic at his booth. I would love to go to one (or more) of his classes some day...but I will definitely have to leave my little one behind. She was so antsy that I was only able to stay for a short while.

Rose Ann, your card is so delicate and pretty! It's a perfect example of how a card doesn't have to be ultra embellished and heavily layered to be an exquisite creation. Your bow is perfection. Love what you do with the Flower Soft!
