Mother's Day is bittersweet with my mom & grandmas gone for so many years. When we got back from camping the roses were going to town! I brought in one of the gorgeous Chicago Peace blooms to put on the mantle next to this sweet picture of my mom taken by my Dad about 6 weeks before she died.
My card would have been perfect to give her. I was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch & the mood board at City Crafter Challenge Blog. I used 3 SSS dies: Bella Bloom, A2 Card Curved Edge & Clustered Leaves.
From the Mood Board I used shades of blue & pink (I know it's really peach in the photos--hopefully close enough) & a doily inspired by the afghan & flowers on the blouse. So fun to make use of a pad of paper I got long ago for just a couple dollars. The bloom & leaves are MFT felt.
Hard to tell, but the doily is spritzed with Tattered Angels Wheatfields & Snow Angel. The dies let me also enter SSS Flickr Challenge #18 to make a card with flowers.
Hope you have a lovely Mother's Day & thank you so much for stopping by my blog.
