For All You Do, Mom...

First off, for my own mom, this isn't the card you'll be getting for Mother's Day! LOL! But we will be making this one at my club this weekend. I took inspiration from a couple different projects that appeared in the most recent issue of Stampin' Success, the magazine that all demonstrators receive once a month (one of my favorite demo perks!). The layout uses this week's Mojo Monday sketch (with a couple little tweaks). I'm also submitting this for the Mother's Day challenges at Hand Stamped Sentiments and SUO Challenges.

I embossed the flower from Petal Pizazz with a combination of the new Melon Mambo embossing powder (from the summer mini! so cool!) and iridescent ice EP. It makes the color of the embossing just a bit lighter with a very subtle sparkle - it's gorgeous IRL. We also have Wild Wasabi (and Tangerine Tango) EP so I used that for the leaves (with no sparkle on those). I added a rhinestone in the center and put a few others under the sentiment, which comes from the set called For All You Do and I thought was lovely for a Mother's Day card. (I just stamped Happy Mother's Day on the inside.) Layers of Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and So Saffron DP (with Early Espresso card stock) finished the layout and I just used a tiny bit of (Daffodil Delight) 1/8" taffeta ribbon as my final embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by today - I really appreciate all of you who read and/or leave me comments - it makes my day!

The combo of image and colors remind me of fruit - mmmmm! Maybe not what you were aiming for, but I love it! Thanks for playing SUO Challenges.

Just gorgeous, Lori! Love the color combo and the design. Can't wait to try that technique with mixing Embossing powders, too. Such an awesome effect! Thanks for playing along at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week! :)
