Floral Mother's Day Card


Hello and Happy Monday!!! My Monday always includes catching up on laundry from the weekend. The one thing that is great about doing laundry on Monday... is it gives me time to play in my craft room. It helps that my washing machine has a very long wash cycle. By they way... have you looked at the calendar lately? It's hard to believe that Mother's Day is only a couple of weeks away. I thought I would take the opportunity to create this Floral Mother's Day Card using this weeks sketch from The Paper Players designed by Ann Schach. Then I used two more challenges as inspiration, 'ABC' Challenges has a Mother's Day theme this week and Paper Playtime has an embossing challenge. I'm also linking this card to the anything goes challenge at Make It Monday. Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic week!!!

Floral Mother's Day Card Supplies*:
  • Paper: Very Vanilla, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, and Gumball Green card stock and Print Poetry dsp paper stack.
  • Stamps: Secret Garden Stamp set by Stampin' Up! and Happy Mother's Day sentiment stamp by Hero Arts.
  • Inks: Classic stampin' pad in Midnight Muse.
  • Other Stuff: Big Shot, Fancy Fan embossing folder, Secret Garden Framelits, Bitty Butterfly punch, pearl basic jewels, and stampin' dimensionals.
*All supplies by Stampin' Up! unless noted.
