I wanted a black chalkboard look for my background to help the flowers will pop. I also used the hexagon hive thinlits die to add a bit of texture. The flowers are stamped in so saffron and calypso coral on the coordinating color cardstock then cut out using the secret garden framelit set. I also stamped a flower image from the petite petals set and punched each out in the same colors. Added each to the center of the flower with a large pearl in the middle. The leaves are in pear pizzazz and work perfectly behind the flowers. Right at the very end, with the help of my friend as my decision maker, I decided to add half of a paper doily behind the flowers.
On the inside, I stamped another set of so saffron and calypso coral flowers with one more pear pizzazz leaf. I always make sure to leave room for my hand written message.
Finishing up my post with a view looking down.
Now I am sure you are wondering why, if this is a mothers day card, that on the front, I don't say "Happy Mother's Day"? Well its simple, I am saying "Thank You" because I am thankful for all my Mom does to help me when I need her. Cause isn't that what Mother's Day is about?, saying "Thank You" for just being awesome!!
I hope you have enjoyed my card using this fun color challenge. Don't forget to leave some "love", you know I "love" the read your comments!
