A monochromatic Mother's day card

Tuesday, May 5, 2009




Can you believe I combined 4 challenges into this 1 card? I started out with the CPS sketch for the week. I paired it with the OCC challenge which was to make something for Mother's Day. I used a monochromatic look with pinks for the Red Banana Challenge. Lastly, the challenge at The Pink Elephant was to use circles and scallops.

The flowers on the focal image were done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I colored them in with my baby pink marker. The dp is some retired paper from CTMH. I was going to add my Happy Mother's Day sentiment but then couldn't make it look right with the card. It was just too big for what I wanted. So I chose the "for you" instead. And then there are the buttons. I loved using all these buttons. If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you knw that I love buttons. This seemed like the perfect sketch to just go button crazy. (I noticed that it's hard to see the sentiment. You can always click on the image to make it bigger).

Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I hope your Tuesday is a fabulous one.
