Mother's Day

Hi and welcome to my first non-DT card in months!  I am getting to the end of a 4-day weekend and have had this idea in my head all weekend and finally got some time in my craft room today to translate it into a card.  This is going to be my card for my mother for Mother's Day, but she's gonna see it here first 😄



My clean and layered card was inspired by several challenges - the color inspiration at SugarPea Designs, the floral challenge at Krafty Chicks, the Spring Mood Board at Simon Says Stamp and the spring/floral elements from the Card Concept.


I created a bouquet of flowers using the challenge colors and arranged them then added Press n Seal over the top before putting it to one side.  The message board was easy to create as the die does it all for you.  The hardest part was adding all the letters and trying to keep them straight - which they're not!


I added the bouquet and then decided to add some stars as a final touch.  The stars and some of the flowers were colored with clear sparkle pen for some shimmer.  This card is bigger than usual at 5.25 x 5.5" but as I'll be hand-delivering it, it's all good.

Thanks for visiting!
