Happy Mother's Day!


Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms and Grandmothers out there! I hope your loved ones cherish you and let you know how much they love and appreciate you on your special day.

I made this card for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers SOSS#33  Monochromatic Mamma challenge - in other words, make a monochromatic Mother's day card. I left out the snark and made a nice card to celebrate this special day.

I used Bashful Blue colors, embossing the background with an Anna Griffin Treillage embossing folder and adding a framelit Chalk Talk die cut from SU! for the tag. The flowers were done with a SU! punch, and some tiny pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty were added to the centers. The sentiment is by Inkadinkado, and the ribbon is Bashful Blue from SU!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is special!

Carol
