Sorbet Mother PP187 FMS127

Hi! 

Just a really quick second post of today as I really wanted to get a card made with this week's Freshly Made Sketch which ends tonight. 

I thought I'd combine it with this week's Paper Players challenge which is a clean and simple springtime theme. 




My mother in law had asked me to make a Mother's Day card for her (British Mother's Day is the end of the month!) so I thought I'd combine a sweet sketch and pretty springtime theme for this one. 



Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink: Sahara Sand
Cardstock: Whisper White, Sahara Sand
DSP: Sweet Sorbet (SAB)

I love that by keeping the background really neutral the ice-cream coloured flowers really pop off the page. I took a bit of time and fussy cut all these flower out - I think they're just beautiful and look so lovely all layered up! 


Some pearls in the flower centres and scattered about just adds that special little touch. I know its quite a lot of pearls but hey, what Mom doesn't deserve that luxury?!

Happy Stampin',

  5. Beautiful card! Before viewing the image larger, I thought the grey and white piece was fishnet type fabric which would have been cool too! Great work! and congrats!

  7. Amanda, I LOVE your card!!! Would it be alright if I CASE it for about a dozen thank you cards for our church's Card Ministry? It will then be featured on my blog, if that's alright with you?
