Another Mother's Day Card

I made another Mother's Day card with my Authentique Grace paper collection.  This paper just goes together all on its own.  Here's the details:

  • All papers are from the collection and they are all edged in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The pink patterned paper was embossed with a Darice embossing folder.
  • The swirls are cut from matching patterned paper using my Sizzix Decorative Swirls.
  • The flower is store bought and has long since been separated from it's package.  I also rubbed on some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to tie this in.
  • The crochet ribbon came from the stash.  
  • On the inside, I used a sentiment from the collection.
I'm all set, a card for my grandma and one for my mom.  I'm even a little ahead of the game.

I decided to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Not So Mellow Yellow.  Even though my yellow flower is a bit mellow, I think that it qualifies as yellow and wanted to join in the fun.  Come on over to see all the yellow-y inspiration.

Don't forget that I've posted a comment party for some blog candy.  Please click through the link, read about my great fortune that, in the end, I am hoping will result in a small fortunate event for you.  All you have to do is follow my blog and comment to win!
