Hello and welcome to May!! This month is full of celebrations! Graduations and Mother's Day take center stage. Our focus is Mother's day for this blog hop. I made this card for a special friend who I have long considered my "spare" mom. I have known her since I was six! Her daughter and I met in first grade. And over 50 years later we are still the best of friends.
This color combo is not one that I would normally put together. I used Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate.
Can you see the sparkle?? A bit of Wink of Stella was added to the white parts of the sweet little chickadee. I did not have any ribbon, that is current, for my card, but I added a strip of Flirty Flamingo on top of a strip of Smoky Slate cardstock to take the place of ribbon. After I stamped the verse from Thoughtful Banners in Black I ran the strip through the Big Shot with the Basket Weave embossing folder. This was a limited free item with Sale A Bration. But the great news is that it will be in the new catalog!!
I love how the embossing makes it look like ribbon!
The pearls add some needed dimension. Plus I popped the chickadee up on a foam dimensional.
I hope that you have a lovely Mother's day no matter who you share the day with. We should all enjoy every day!
