Mothers Day for DIL

To see the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge post please scroll down.
I have been blessed with some wonderful mothers in my life; 2 daughters in law, a daughter, the mother of one of my sweet grandsons, my amazing mother-in-law and my dear mother. So I have been busy making cards for each one of them. Yesterday's post was my first card and here is my second. This one I followed the sketch from The Sweet Shop.


I tried a fun technique with this card. I colored the chunky (solid) stamps then spritzed some water on the stamps before stamping on GKD Pure Luxury white cs. Such fun and a different look. I also used some colors not usually associated with Mother's Day cards, just for a change. I used an Impressibility for the green panel.


Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment! Come back tomorrow for another Mother's Day card!

WOW I love this card. I particularly like the way the impressed background matches with the tulip shapes. FABULOUS.
