H2H Mother's Day Card



Wow, can you believe it is May already???  To start off the month, H2H Challenges is having a Mother’s Day Challenge.  Create a project for Mother’s Day using Close To My Heart products.  Be sure and stop by the site to see the other fabulous creations.

I based my card on the sketch this week at Retro Sketches.

 
All supplies by Close To My Heart:

C1494 Card Word Puzzle
D1283 Say It in Style
CC1017 Dotty For You Paper
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
5571 Grey Wool Cardstock
X5754 Crème Brulee Cardstock
Z2125 Grey Wool Ink
Z320 Garden Green Marker
Z2351 Sunkiss Yellow Marker
Z891 VersaMark Ink
Z673 White Daisy Embossing Powder
Z1335 Pearl Gems
Z1732 Seam Binding Ribbon
Z679 Liquid Glass


Design Tip-I stamped three of the flower images and heat embossed.  I added more color with the Sunkiss Yellow Marker. I then selectively cut and layered the flowers for added dimension.  I added pearls to the center of the flower and then coated with liquid glass to make sure they stay put! (This card is being mailed, which calls for extra adhesive!)  I stamped the leaves on Grey Wool cardstock and then outlined in Garden Green.  I wanted to stay with my yellow/gray color theme, but give a hint of green for the leaves.

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:
2 Sisters - Anything goes 
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything goes 
Amusing Challenges - Fussy cut 
Catch The Bug  -  Anything goes 
Crop Stop - Embossing
