Hi everyone! A Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all of you! Today’s card is my Mother’s Day card for this year – I’m so happy with how it turned out. This is the first time I’ve used the Lattice die and I just love it. It looks beautiful with a DSP backdrop, don’t you think! To glam it up, I added a few pearls :). This card is inspired by this week’s Paper Players theme – Birds, Bees, Flowers and Trees!
The flower probably looks familiar – one of my favorite techniques of spritzing with Stampin’ Mist and scrunching up the flowers while they’re still wet – then letting dry. They look great and smell even better! The flower pieces are held together using hemp twine and a Big Designer Button :). I assembled my cards while watching American Idol and had some help from one of my cats, Tucker. He was particularly enamored with the hemp twine – haha!
I just want to wish all of my followers a very happy Mother’s Day! It’s a bittersweet day for me having lost my mom over 13 years ago. I’ll leave you with a wonderful photo of my mom that I came across today. Enjoy!
