Peachy Keen Mother's Day Card


Loved the layout of this sketch so decided to play along with Peachy Keen's challenge this week.  However, once I had finished the card, I realized I didn't include the twist of using gold or metallic on the card.  That's what I get for not having a piece of paper with the specs on it right in front of my face LOL!

If all goes well, the half pearls will count.  If not, I'm quite happy with the card, so all is good :)

Love this card, Marisa. The sheer ribbon is divine atop that pretty punched piece. And, who doesn't love a heart?

The addition of the heart takes this Mother's day card to "precious". I think it is just so soft and feminine!
