#1 Mom!

Hi all!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  My weekend was pretty much jam packed with getting Easter and Mother's Day cards finished up and enjoying some time with my DH.  Being an LACounty Firefighter, he rarely gets an entire weekend off from work, so it sure was nice to have him home for a few days in a row. 8-)  In celebration of finishing up my Mother's Day cards, I thought I would get in two more challenges tonight, before it's time to start all over again tomorrow! 8-)

For tonights post, I chose Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #111 to use stamps you have not used before and Crazy 4 Challenges #81.

I stamped my Flourishes image onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored  up my cute little mug of flowers with my trusty Copics using a few of the Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes.  I love their grouped Collections, it makes it so easy to color and blend with Copics and get fabulous results.  I put a nice little embossed edge on my image panel and BG panel with my Score Pal and matted them up with a combination of some pretty pink pastel cardstock from my stash and some adorable DP from Basic Grey's Kioshi pack.  My Flourishes sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto my layered eyelet circle that I created with my eyelet Circles Nesties set and then popped it up with some dimensionals.  I used my MS traditional Scallops border punch for the bottom panel and I added a touch of Star Dust Stickels and little pearls that I colored up with my Copics to coordinate with my sweet  little bouquet.  Here's a close up shot so you can see it a little better.

And that's pretty much it.  I put it all together and Voila, there you have it, my #1Mom card, all ready to go for Mother's Day.    

Thanks so much for visiting! 8-)
