Happy Mother's Day: Terrific Tuesday Challenge
Mommy, if you're reading this blog post...stop. Your Mother's Day card is pictured below. hee hee.
The challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps was to use the Forever Young cartridge. I had so much fun making this card! I used paper from My Mind's Eye: Ooh La La and Lime Twist: Life of the Party. These two stacks complement each other SO perfectly. Here's the Lime Twist pad:
The circle sentiment is from Emma's newest release: All Around Everything and the stamped flower in the center is from the All Around Everything Accessories set. These sets are a must have! The combinations are endless. Of course, that's Emma's Scallop and Stitched circle die. Now, I LOVE all of Emma's stamps and dies, but I didn't purchase her latest flower dies. I'm not that into 3-D flowers. But, after seeing her projects and her fabulous Design Team's projects, I wanted a 3-D flower for this project and was sorry I didn't puchase the set. I'm an instant gratification kind of gal so decided to try layering some flowers from my Cricut to get a similar look. I chose a flower from the Forever Young cartridge. I had to do some snipping, but by and large, I love the way it came out. I made a pom-pom from twine for the center. The "mommy" on Emma's oval stitched die is from Pink By Design Our Mother's set. Isn't this card so beautiful?!
