Mother's Day Card - Two Versions

Mother's Day photo MDay5picA.jpg

I made two cards with the same layout and just switched up the colours and images on them.  The first card uses The Art of Life set by Stampin' Up.  It is a set I have always loved and haven't used in ages so it was good to give it some ink.  Just love this flower image!

The second card uses Easy Elegance, another wonderful flower set by Stampin' Up.  This time I used my favorite pink and yellow colour combo - much like the colours of the tulips and cherry blossoms  in our neighbourhood right now.   Two quick and easy cards, and I just love that little PTI tag - so perfect for a Mother's Day card!

Back to work - still crazy busy here.  Thanks for popping by and have a great day.

Stunning cards, Marisa! Did you 'stamp' first to give this effect, or use your markers first? They are so soft and pretty!
Hugs!

Those are darling! The Art of Life is one of my all time favorite sets. I'm not sure if I have Easy Elegance, but you've made a beautiful card with it too!

Both of these are beautiful and have such different 'feels'. The first is ever so soothing, the second is sprightly and happy.

Oh these cards are so soft and pretty. I like both of these colour combos and the "Mom" tags are so cute.

Beautiful both ways, although I am leaning towards the lavendar one. Very soft and delicate feeling.
