Happy Mom's Day

I know I'm a day early, but just wanted to say Happy Mother's Day!


I did a little distressing on this card and used an image from Fabulous Florets.  I used some Certainly Celery and Hollyhock ICTMH) along with Very Vanilla and some DP from Basic Grey.  I keep hoarding this paper from Basic Grey (Porcelain Paper Pack) and finally decided to use at least a couple of sheets.  The flowers have been cut out and popped up with a pearl in the center.  I also added some addition small pearls in two of the corners.  The ribbon is Cherry Cobbler seam binding.

I'll enter this in the challenges at Peachy Keen (Sketch), Lollipop Crafts (Mama Mia), Love to Create (For Mom), Celebrate the Occasion (Mother's Day),  Delightful Challenges (Distressing), and Tuesday Throwdown (Motherly Love).

Thanks for stopping by .......... and have a wonderful weekend.
Lynn

Beautiful card, Lynn. I think that is the first time I've seen that ribbon. Your flowers and pearls are so very nice. Happy Mother's Day to you.

I love this! It's so pretty and soft-looking and that paper sort of gives it a water-colour look. I like the pearl centers and that red bow really makes the paper and your colouring pop... gorgeous!
