.... Part II! Okay, I know I shared a Mother's Day card last Sunday, but this one was made for my wonderful Mother-in-law, Madeline! She's a super woman and I love her lots! The CR84FN50 colours are so bright and vibrant and, for Madeline, I went for a bright, cheerful card. The inspiration photos are courtesy of Southern Wedding Magazines - just gorgeous!
I've gone a clean and simple design and used the fabulous Medallion stamp from Stampin' Up! - it hasn't seen ink for a while, but I thought it would look great in these colours. I stamped it directly onto the card in pink, then stamped it again on white card in orange and yellow. I cut the central sections out using my Spellbinder dies, adding a pink gem to finish it off. On the opposite corner, I stamped a "bit" of the medallion in yellow and then, using my stamp-a-ma-jig, stamped the sentiment.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Medallion, Sentiments
Inks: Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango
Spellbinders: Big Scalloped Circles Lg (S4-249) # 1, Plain Circles Lg (S4-114) #4
Accessories: Card and gem from stash

Since arriving in Michigan, we have had the most wonderful weather - I know that it's totally unusual, but it's been a wonderful just the same. Yesterday we decided to do a bit of exploring, we were going to visit Detroit Zoo, but it was rather dull, so we headed out towards Lansing - capital of Michigan. There are some marvellous buildings there and we will have to visit again - only this time when the weather is better so that we can take some decent photos.
That's all for now, see you soon.
