Thank You Mom...


This Cardabilities sketch caught my eye so I decided to give it a go and continue on my flower binge...

More Verve goodies on this card.  Just love Julee's flower stamps and her sentiments are second to none.  For the sentiment panel, I combined two sentiments from Because of You, layering "Mom" above the other one. 

Next came some flowers, butterflies and some dots  for good measure (are seeing a pattern here...or should I say are you getting tired of seeing a pattern here??!!).  Just a few more Mother's Day cards to go so hang in there...they will come to an end sooner than later :)

Enjoy your day, and thanks for sharing a bit of yours with me :)

 

What's In It?
Stamps: Bloom and Grow, Because of You (Verve)
Paper: Provo Craft DP (Mike's), Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst
Ink: Black, VersaMark, So Saffron, More Mustard

Oh, this is beautiful, Marisa...I love the splashes of purple accents...I guess because mostly I have a hard time pulling that color off. (Off of what? :) Anyway...that sentiment is just lovely and this card makes one gorgeous, heartfelt Mother's day card. Just delightful.
