Mother's Day Cards

I do love flowers.

Papers by 7Gypsies and G45. I usually pick loud paper. Maybe because I'm hearing impaired. However, I thought these vintage papers did justice for this vase of flowers.

 Another digi by D2T. I used Staedtler and Loew-Cornell pencils. I all but scribbled in the color to keep the whimsical look. 

Topped the flowers with a bit of sparkle from my Stardust gel pen.     

Ribbon by WRMK. Stick pin from LYB and craft stash. Used my handy dandy corner punch to cover up a mistake! Never woulda thunk to layer it on rounded corners but I like it.

Bird's Tulips.
Papers from Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket. This collection was RAK'd to me by Kristin. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites. And it's LOUD :) Followed another sketch by Mojo Monday. I just love the archives in the R sidebar!

I got this beautiful digi from Bird. I was up late watching youtube tutorials last night, learning how to use OMS with my prismacolor pencils. This is one of my experiments. I learned about how to use the finest bit of blue for shading in the darkest spots. I still need practice but I can't deny that I like the way this turned out anyway!

Topped the basket with a clear gen pen. Topped the greenery with CA and the flowers with GA. I'm sure the flowers would look great with stickles too! I fussycut the image and layered on cuts from Gypsy/Expression. The cuts are from Storybook, my favorite cart.

Love this punch by EK Success. I added three little gems as the last bit of sparkle.

I love the VARIETY of your cards...they are not clones!! I go for brighter colors and 'louder' papers usually too. I especially like the red,white & blue basket card and the big hole punched edge is fun! Your Mother's Day cards are awesome. How wonderful of you to 'personalize' them depending on the recipient! Hugs!

I love loud paper too! Love the yellow in the first card, I seem to shy away from it when buying paper, but you make it look so pretty I'll have to try it. As always, your coloring is beautiful!
