You're one of my nicest thoughts - flower Mother's Day card


Good evening! I wanted to share with you a card I made for Mother's Day. My sister has requested a few cards so I am working on them. Here is the first one I came up with. I am in love with the MME paper pad I got from Scrapbooksteals.com a while back.

This is a 5x5 card that I inked the edges using Distress Ink in Pumice Stone, cut the background paper a little smaller then the card and inked the edges also. The Mother's Day sentiment is from a printed page I got from Teresa Collins that I found a link on My Craft Channel.  I cut it out and inked the edges using pumice stone again then adhered it to the chevron background.


I cute the flower at 3 inches and then used some stickles to give it a little bling.  I then glues it to the shadow I cut so that it would stick well, used some pop dots to adhere it to the card, pop dots on the sentiment, and then used the cute little clothespin on the sentiment.

I stamped the inside of the card using a Hero Arts friend stamp set and used a scrap of the black chevron paper on the inside just to "dress" it up a little bit.



I am entering this card in the challenges over at My Craft SpotLittle Scrap Pieces, & Card Patterns
