Turning Into My Mom Card

This is an image I've had for years and kept forgetting to find it.
Not this year! 

I'm not overly thrilled with this card though. It's a bit too bright.

The design is based off of a sample in an old catalog, using a different
image, colors and embellishments. 

Most supplies used were from Stampin' Up!

Happy Mother's Day !  I'll be baking first thing this morning then picking up my Mom to drive her to my sisters house. This will be the first time we've seen them since the pandemic hit, actually since Christmas 2019!  

Thanks for looking =)

Best Mother Ever Card

I used some of my old brass templates by Lasting Impressions for this card.
After embossing the images on the colored papers,
I lightly sanded the raised portions to reveal
a bit of the white core for contrast. 

The rubber stamp image, pink patterned paper and 
card stocks are all from Stampin' Up!

The white core textured green card stock, Close To My Heart.

Black polka dot paper, Die Cuts With A View.

Sequins from my crafts stash.

Thanks for looking =)

Floral Dance Die - pink

Happy May Day!

This card is a work in progress.
I left it at this point and will add something
else to it when I am ready to send it.
I don't have a need for it at the moment.

Maybe I should have stamped or embossed the pink background.
A solid ribbon, not sheer, probably would have been better, too. 
It's kind of "blah" to me.

 The border is die cut with a Diesires die, 
Floral Dance, and colored with chalks.
Rhinestone accents.

Thanks for looking =)
