Hope you are all well. What a glorious day it has been, bright sunshine and blue skies. Just a pity I had to spend it at work lol. Still I think all the sunshine brought out everyone's good side so lots of laughs today and everyone in a good mood.
I was also delighted to win the last challenge over at the Stamping Boutique with my gold 50th Wedding Anniversary card. I get to choose 3 images from their on line store as my prize. Thank you to the Stamping Boutique.
Anyway, onto today's offering for you. On Sunday it was Mothers Day here in the UK but it was also my Mum's birthday. Here is the card I made for her. As my Mum also makes cards I just decided to throw all the things she loves (and I love) at it, literally.
The topper is a lovely stamp from Hero Arts. I stamped and then embossed it with clear embossing powder (one of my favourite techniques). I then used some pearl acrylic paint (Adirondack paint dabber) and lightly applied this over the stamp using cling film. I then applied distress ink. In the right light it gives a lovely pearly background.
The papers were a combination of papermania (yellow gingham) and First Edition Dreamcatcher (butterfly paper at the bottom). Across the centre I used some wide satin cream ribbon and some purple organza. The roses are from Hobbycraft and I added some glitter to them for sparkle. Die cut some leaves and butterflies which I also glittered. Added one of my lovely metal corners and some pins to the bow.
Am pleased to report that Mum really loved the card.
