I Love You

This card is going to be for my very own mommy! She loves pink, blue, green, flowers, and 
stuff that sparkles. Think I covered all that?

I've fallen in love with using 6x6 papers on my cards over the last month or so, thus a buying addiction. However, I always sighed and rolled my eyes when I flipped through this MME Miss Caroline paper pad and saw that background paper, with the dark wood and flowers. I just didn't like it. Then, I saw this card by Claudia. So THAT'S how it's done! As usual, she is brilliant with layering. I always love how she mixes colors for matting. It certainly takes the fuss out of matching everything. Well, let me just admit it: most of this card is fashioned after hers. At least, it's for someone really special!

I know I just posted my farewell to Whimsy Stamps but I'll never be tired of their digis. This one is by Crissy Armstrong. I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS. I used Distress Ink on the edges, blue and green.

The flowers are a blend of Prima and Recollections. The little metal piece I found on eBay. I used my Cricut to cut a perfect paper oval and filled it with a sentiment from Hot Off the Press, 
topped with Glossy Accents.

Have you made something for your mom? Leave a direct link in the comments and I will check it out!
