Happy Mother’s Day!

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!

  1. Very pretty! I love the flower and that lattice is perfect against the designer paper. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Players this week. 🙂

  2. Very pretty, Julie! I love the white lattice against the Vintage Springtime DSP. The "pop" of color created by the flower is perfect! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  3. Julie, this is lovely! The lattice looks wonderful on the DSP and your flower is gorgeous! What a fantastic pic of your Mom too. My thoughts go out to you on Mother's Day–I have the same feelings about Father's Day. ((big hugs))
