Mother's Day Wishes

Hi there,

Mother's Day is coming up and both my mom and my mother-in-law love flowers so I've designed this card for them. I've also designed this card with a card challenge in mind. This time I went to Stamping Only Challenges and the theme was Mother's Day cards. I just love how I could create so many different flowers with the Build a Blossom stamp set and the Blossom Petals Punch. I don't think that I'll ever get tired of this set.

Here's the card:

Here's the recipe:

CS: Crumb Cake, Rose Red, Old Olive, Early Espresso
Stamp set: Build a Blossom, Well Scripted
Ink: Rose Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Antique Brad
Tools: Big Shot, Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Blossom Petals Punch, Decorative Label Punch

Thanks for stopping by,

  7. So pretty! I really like how that bold blossom just pops off the neutral background! I agree with you, I don't think I will ever get tired of that stamp set either. So prefect for so many occasions. Thanks for playing along at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week! I hope you will join us again. :)
