PSC30: Handmade Flowers for Mom

This weeks challenge is to make a card for mom with hand made flowers.
This is a hard one for me to do as I lost my mother 3 years ago. But I always
take flowers and hand made card to her resting place on Mothers day.
So, here is the card that I made for her.
My mother loved purple so I chose purple for her this year. I used my border
embosser to make the flowers in the corner. For the lacy edge I used one of 
Martha Stewarts edge punch. I love her punches. I layed a solid piece of  purple
over top so that just the scallops showed.
Here you get a much better look at the embossed flowers and the lacy edge.
My oval was cut with my Bigkicks and oval spellbinders cutter. I then ran it
through my Dotted Swiss embossing folder for more texture. The flowers were
stamped and fussy cut. I layed the leaves flat and placed pop dots on the flower
to lift it off the page some.
Here you can see that I put swirls under the oval, punched out a butterfly, again 
using Martha Stewart's punch and hand cut the sentiment tag and used black
stickers for the word Mom. I know that if my mother was her she would absolutely
love this card.

  3. Hi Pam :) Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comment--to answer your question about that hippie chick image, yes it's a digi from Sassy Studio Designs and she's $3 if I remember correct. Now about your card here--well your Mother must have been an amazing woman as she has a very talented and kind hearted daughter who has obviously been encouraged to use her creativity :) I think she will love this card when you visit her this year...I happen to think that love comes from a place beyond this realm and exists beyond our bodies on this eart--not to get deep but what I mean is that I think she will feel your love and be there with you on this special day. Your details and shades of purple are so lovely. If I'm correct, those are pansies and I love them so much. Thanks for sharing your card and your wonderful blog :) hugs
