What's in Your Tin meets Comfort & Peace

Chocolate Chip, layered with This is one of the two Mother's Day cards I made recently.

The base card is beautiful pink Bazzill card stock; I love that stuff; layered with SU's Purely Pomegranate, layered with SU's Chocolate Chip, layered with SU's DP Berry Bliss. I stamped the outline image from "What's In Your Tin 2" and then stamped one of the floral images from "Comfort & Peace" inside the outline. I tried to do the thumping technique which Beate taught on SCS not too long ago, but it didn't really work out - so I tapped. :D LOL It works! The flowers are in a lighter pink and then tapped with Rose Red. I added some gorgeous chocolate satin ribbon and double-stitched Purely Pomegranate ribbon. The primas were added to cover a little "mistake" in the corner; the bottom flower was originally white - I made it chocolate. The top flower was a light pink, I made it more of the Purely Pomegranate color - you'd never know they started off as a different color.

I made one with pearls and one with rain drops on top of the DP Berry Bliss. I purchased the rain drops from Gina K's store; and this one only uses the Purely Pomegranate double-stitched ribbon. Hope the mom's receiving these cards like them!!

And for the fun of it; here's one of our labs playing 'soccer' with our DD; we were shocked to see the dog could pick up the soccer ball in her mouth; so DD HAD to have a picture of that. Note...we're using a "pink" soccer ball; are we color-coordinated OR WHAT?

LOL

Hope you've had a great weekend. Hugs, ~M.

This is absolutely beautiful, Michelle! I love the "tapping" you did on the flowers.

These are lovely, very elegant. Purely pomegranate has to be my favourite colour at the moment.
