A Mother's Love


Just a quick post to show off a card I made at the request of a co-worker.  It's for his wife for Mother's Day and they have two darling little girls.  When I saw this image over at A Day For Daisies shop, I knew I HAD to use it!  I would like to thank my friend Jasmine of Wasted Scraps for introducing me to these whimsical images (translation: I blame her for enabling me!  lol)

I decided to work with this week's sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches (#145).  It was designed by my crafty friend and design team mate Kathy and is one of those fabulous sketches you can dress up or down and it still looks wonderful!  They had a "twist" to the sketch as well and that was to use a die cut.  The doily behind my image is a die from Cheery Lynn called French Pastry.  I kept card pretty simple since I decided to play along with the current A Day For Daisies challenge too, which is Crazy for Calico (#42).  I wanted you to be able to see the small print paper I used so that was why I kept embellishments to a minimum.  This is my first time joining in over there and I hope to do so again in the future as I am just smitten with their images!

My image is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers.  I added a few pearls, some flowers, and the sumptuous ruffled ribbon from Stampin' Up in Cherry Cobbler.

I have to run... It's almost time for work, but thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous!  I'll be back tomorrow with our weekly Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Freebie Friday image so be sure to check out our Paper Craft Planet group then.
