Great Mom and Grandma
My starting point was this yummy Melissa Frances DP. Such a soft feel to it and I love the script and flowers on it. I paired it with some Sage Shadow and go to use my new Martha Stewart butterfly punch which I was finally able to track down - happy sigh :) The flower comes from the clearance isle at Mike's (got three for 69 cents - score!). It almost feels a bit large for the card, but the pink bow on its lonesome wasn't enough and yellow button just didn't cut it.
Made this card for my mom and can't wait to give it to her. She is such an amazing woman and selflessly gives of herself to so many. Love watching my kids interact with her and I know they will build some wonderful memories of their times together.
One Verve sketch down, two to go - that is if I get the other two done before Friday. This also qualifies for the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Spring Has Sprung
Your Next Stamp Challenge - Pop It Up
Moving Along With the Times - 2Bs challenge
