CAS Mother's Day

I am really enjoying these layouts from the Clean & Simple blog; here's another one I did - FTL 85. I'm still enjoying several of my new PTI goodies and this time I played with both black & Hawaiian Shores felt to make some fabby flowers; I cut the edges off that flowed over the card - I liked them overflowing, but I also liked this look (and it needs to fit into the envelope - HA!)! My card is 7.25" by 3.5" inch; love the size, had tons of fun with it.

I used cardstock for the panel on the left-hand side but really felt it needed something else - I could just not make it work but I loved when I pulled out this beautiful black silky ribbon from My Favorite Things; the shine and edging is just gorgeous; so I joined the newest trend and made a ruffly strip; ***LOVE*** how it turned out - really hard to photograph though. The verse is from Verve Visual's "Because of You"; LOVE what it says! The inside is a simple Happy Mother's Day in black, but I added some swirly brackets in Hawaiian Shore from PTI's 2nd anniversary stamp set (not sold); I stamped it once right side up and then once upside down; since the stamps are clear, it's easy-peasy to line them up! I added lots of glitter using a clear Spica glitter pen to the brackets, but you can't see that in the photo. :( Great IRL though!!

I added MME's Lush black and some miscellaneous turquoise gems to the flowers. I love the way PTI's dies work - they are amazing - these flowers are from Beautiful Blooms II; I used all 3 sizes for the various flowers.

Thanks for stopping by; I'm going to have some MEGA EXCITING news late Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning; I hope you'll stop back by! Have a great week; hugs, ~M.
