Great Love


 With Mother's Day coming up I decided I better get cracking and get a card created for my MIL.  She has a birthday and Mother's Day within a few days of each other.  I will have to be working on the birthday card next!  This card started with looking for some favorite stamps for Simon Says Stamp and Show your Favorite stamp (which is like picking your favorite child) and also is for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Damask or Brocade.  I used some of my much loved Hero Arts stamps (Classic Tea Rose, Fabric Background, Thanks Definition Cling) along with the sentiment which is from Verses Rubber Stamps - QQ0846 Mother Teresa quote.  I think a mother & father's love is all about the small things. :) 

The background is stamped with the beautiful damask pattern using a mix of yellow and orange dye inks spritzed with Perfect Pearls mister.  Overlaid is the thank you definition (again as a thank you to his mother for all she has done for him). 

The flowers are stamped and colored with watercolor pencils. My DH helped with the design too. I had two different backgrounds and he selected the design he liked better. So he did help with his Mother's card. LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Your card is amazing! First of all, I love the sentiment and totally agree with it. It's beautiful! You have really done it justice with the card you have created around it. The design is so exquisite. I love the doily and the bling flourishes. The ribbon bow with the spot of bling is gorgeous, too. I love the background paper with the yellow and then how you've colorized the flowers around the saying to match. And the black matting....WOW! Just a beautiful job! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
