Happy Mother's Day

I waited too long to make my Mother's Day cards, and to add to that, the creativity was just not flowing. I had recently received Verve's gorgeous Because of You set, and had to use it. I was perusing Laura Fredrickson's BLOG and found THIS card, which is amazing. I CASE'd it for my mom - it was so perfect. I changed it by adding a base of Purely Pomegranate and mounting the white on top. I used Cameo Coral for the base strip down the left and punched it with SU's new Eyelet Border Punch. I added a strip of Raspberry Tart DSP on top of that. I used was Kiwi Kiss double sided satin ribbon with a piece of Hodgepodge Hardware at the knot. The sentiment is stamped on white with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink. It is then matted on Kiwi Kiss. Cameo Coral and Kiwi Kiss are used to highlight the words "inspiration", "Because of you", and "purpose". The flowers and greens are stamped with Cameo Coral and Kiwi Kiss. I added some Cotton Candy Stickles on the flowers for a little sparkle. I gave this card to my mom tonight. She LOVED it. Thank you Laura for the inspiration. Your work is always so gorgeous, and I really needed a kew to release my creative block. Happy Mother's Day!
