3 Clover's Thursday Challenge #12-Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day to you all! All the stampers on Kerry's Challenge Team over at 3 Clover's Thursday Challenge want to wish you the best! This week's theme is none other than----Mother's Day!

Here is my card...I didn't start out making this sort of card at all...everything I wanted to use just didn't make me happy until I found this color combo! Isn't this Mother stamp great? I bought it last year and am just getting around to using it! Ahh...the story of my stamp collection and I still want more LOL!

On with the details of this card...I stamped my sentiment and then cut it out with my nesties. After cutting several layers and rearranging them a 'bazillion' times, I finally came to this design. I used my SU! Little Leaves Sizzix die. This die is just so versatile. I embellished the cards with some cream Kaiser pearls and came up with what I think is a pretty classy card. This SU! DP is pretty elegant stuff for the type of cards I normally make, so I was glad to use it for the inspiration on this card.

How pretty. The little pearls are just elegant and even though you forgot the lace/ribbon I think the DP looks like a "lacy" pattern (so that counts in my book).
