A Few More Mother's Day Cards

These are the last of the Mother's Day cards I made - this first one was for a Grandma, so it's sweet and dainty. :D

I used a sketch...but you know when you can't complete a sketch timely and you don't write it down....well, we all know what happens then! HA! I stitched around each of the long panels and also distressed all the edges with SU! Close to Cocoa.

I added cotton candy stickles to the main panel and a paper made flower. I painted stickles all over the flower too - it's so sparkly IRL!

This last card was to be more modern...not sure if I achieved that look or not but I really like the way the card turned out! You cannot see it in the photos, but each petal of the paper flower is stamped with different colored polka dots and then I sponged the edges with SU! Close to Cocoa. I love the different colored polka dots, they really bring all the paper pieces together.

The DP is from PTI's Green Boutique Paper Collection - it uses hues of Hawaiian Shores, New Leaf and Aqua Mist. I already had the large blue pearl in the center of the flower and was thrilled to see it matched perfectly! I rounded the top corners of each panel and let the DP and flower speak for itself. I love making these flowers; so fun and so easy....wish they were a bit easier to mail! :p

The bottom panel is stamped with "Celebrate" from PTI's Women of Life; I also added 3 white pearls.

TFL; hope you're having a great week! Hugs, ~M.
