.... I know that my friends in North America celebrate Mother's Day in May, but in the United Kingdom and Ireland, today is Mother's Day. Often called Mothering Sunday, it traditionally falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent. I made my Mum her card using our lovely CR84FN50 colours - although I've gone for a slightly softer palette!
I recently got some lovely stash from Stampin' Up! and this flower is just lovely - I stamped around the edge of the card in pink, yellow and orange. I decided to make a feature panel for the sentiment and used the gorgeous Labels 23 to cut a large and small panel. On the large pink panel I stamped some flourishes and on the smaller panel I added colour with distress inks, finishing off the panel by stamping a simple, but heartfelt, sentiment. I attached some ribbon to the panels before attaching them to the card. Finally I stamped the flower again in all three colours - embossing each one so that the finished flower has a lovely shine.
