For My Wonderful Mother-PP242

April 26, 2016

WOW!  This week flew by!  It is Sunday and time for another fabulous challenge at The Paper Players!  The super talented, Ann is our hostess this week!  We can't wait to see all your fabulous creations!  

My card is for Mother's Day.  My mom loves green so, I wanted it to reflect Springtime, too!  I know she will cherish it and I can't wait to send it to her.

I used Pistachio Pudding and Blushing Bride on my card.  The base card is white.  I really love how the pink and green pop off the white.  The Blushing Bride scalloped oval was cut using a punch.  The inside oval was made using a retired embossing folder by Stampin' Up!  I trimmed the oval with my paper snips.  I then cut another white oval with the oval punch to put in the middle of the embossed oval. 

I stamped three Petite Petals flowers with Rose Red and then punched them out using the matching punch.  I stamped a few Pistachio Pudding leaves in the background using "Summer Silhouettes."   Stampin' Dimensionals were added to make the flowers pop up and a pearl was added in the center of each flower.

A retired Stampin' Up Stamp, "Delightful Dozen" was used for the sentiment.
A row of tiny pearls was added below the sentiment to make it even more feminine.  A matching envelope was created using the envelope liner and Background Designer Series Paper in Blushing Bride.
