This weekend we celebrate Mother's Day and honor the women in our lives. It is a time to reflect on how much they mean to us and what an important part they have played in our lives. Happy Mother's Day to each of you and I hope your day is filled with happiness and lots of love.
As I begin creating this card it brought back lots of memories. First, I found this beautiful paper from Graphic 45 Le' Romantique which started my creative juices flowing. I cut out the lady wearing a vintage hat and ran it through my Zutter Distresser machine to age it even more I wish I could capture the true colors with my camera because even though the ribbon and bow look blue, they match the paper.
Yesterday I receive new Tim Holtz dies and one was this Sewing Room Die I used the back of the same DP to cut it out and then cut off the stand the Dress Form stands on. I found a perfect match for the background paper in my stash and added just the right color cardstock for the border paper.
Then I headed over to my shop to see what else I could use on the card and found this beautiful embellishment by Prima Flowers that looks like a ladies broach. Isn't it perfect for this card?
The bow is tied with silk ribbon by May Arts using the Bow Easy. I stamped the word Daughter with JustRite's newest stamp collection called Family Garden CL-02145 and cut it out using Spellbinders Tags. This was a very fun card to make even though I sure do miss my Mom at times like this.
Happy Mother's Day my friends!
