Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother’s Day to all those wonderful mothers who give so much to those around them.  I made a special card just for you!!

The image is the center is a Beccy Muir digital image from Sparkle N Sprinkle, named Flower Wreath Set.  I colored it with alcohol markers and layered it on a black Flower Multi Frame Die by Nellie Snellen, along with a Cheery Lynn Designs Kiwi Spirit Doily cut from vellum.

The background is dry embossed with a Daisy Lace Frame die from Cheery Lynn Designs and layered on distressed layers.  I added a stitched look by running a piercer tool around the edge and adding SNS Gypsy Red Velvet Glitter with a glue pen.  The lacy border along the center is actually die cut using the Anastasia Border, also from Cheery Lynn Designs.

For embellishment I add pearls and buttons, along with three little white flowers created with Vellum, Spellbinders’ Rose Creations dies, and SNS Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter.  The butterfly in the center is die cut from vellum with Cheery Lynn Designs’ Exotic Butterfly die and layered on the coordinating angel wings die cut from sticker paper.  After layering them I added more Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter.

I stamped Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Beautiful Day sentiment with Memento Lady Bug ink and cut out with Spellbinders’ Back to Basics Tags die.

Hope you had a wonderful day.

E. Marie
