I am in love! CPS 164 Part 1

Oh, I really, really, really love this card - do you? I love the colors, I love the layout, I love that ribbon, I REALLY love those crocheted flowers - just scrumptious. LOL!!

I used CPS Sketch 164 Part 1; I love the layout - originally my card had an extra layer but when I revisited the sketch I realized I didn't need that layer...turns out I love it so much more without that layer! BINGO - love when that happens. Am I writing about Valentine's Day, cuz I'm sure using the word "love" a whole lot! :D

Anyway, I purchased these crocheted flowers from Needle Creations on Etsy - she has amazing stuff. I love her even more because she is a principal - wow; tough job, no doubt!!

The smaller flowers were inked with a light pink and then I rock-n-rolled the edges in PTI's Hibiscus Burst - I wanted them to look variegated like the crocheted flowers. I then added a hot pink flat pearl to the middle of each of the small flowers. I edged all the layers with PTI's Vintage Cream; added some Hibiscus Burst Saddle Stitch ribbon to finish the card.

I like the inside too! :p

It says "I'm so blessed to call you...Mother"; two different stamps sets and I stamped "Mother" in Hibiscus Burst so it would stand out as unique against the black; it was really tough to photograph but looks pretty IRL.

I hope you've enjoyed this Mother's Day card - more to come soon. Thanks for stopping by; I love when you visit! Hugs, ~M.
