Happy Mothers Day.. On the Grow

For Mothers’ Day, I would like to wish you and yours a very happy and fun Mothers’ Day.. and remembering those Mothers’ whom we have lost throughout the years! 

Today’s card, in honor of Mothers’ Day.. is a bouquet of flowers from the On The Grow Stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog… reminding me of those hand picked posies my children brought home from their walks through the woods.


Tiny pearls adorn the centers of each perfect plum bloom, in a vase water colored with markers.  An offset Marina Mist Ribbon adds a little something ‘extra’ to the card, which is accented by a postage stamp punched “thinking of you” again, adorned with a row of tiny basic jewel pearls.

I don’t use the spiral punch very often any more, but it seemed to find it’s way onto this card as a nice accent, allowing a peep of perfect plum card stock to peer through the top most layer.

The background layer of Whisper White Card Stock was embossed using a big shot machine and perfect polka dots textured embossing folder, reminiscent of dotted Swiss fabric on a little girls’ dress.

Keeping it short and sweet today… hopefully making up for yesterday’s lengthy Super Saturday tutorial, and enjoying Mothers’ Day with my DH and one of my children… the other one is far away from home in the USAF.

See you tomorrow with a couple CAS (Clean and Simple) card designs!



Pin It!
