Happy Mother's Day



I made this first card for my Mother for Mother's Day using the sketch from Amy Westerman's Super Sunday Sketch from last Sunday. I really liked this sketch. It was pretty simple and straightforward and worked well for this stamp set.

I used Basic Grey paper to get the kind of look that is my Mother's taste. I think she will like this card as is looks "vintagy" (Is that a word? I thought not). I stamped the flower image twice, cut out the center and popped it up with a build-a-brad. I used some of my new Dew Drops too.



I made this second card for my Mother-in-Law for Mother's Day using Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #47 and this week's Color Challenge CC#165 from SplitCoast Stampers. I used the Pretty Amazing stamp set again. I haven't used it nearly as much as I've wanted too. I did the flower the same on both cards since I liked the way it looked so much. Don't these colors really look good together?
