Happy Mother's Day card




 Happy Monday, All!

I wanted to share my mom's Mother's Day card.  At first glance you may question my colors but the colors are "my mom's colors".  My mom used to wear the most beautiful black shirts with roses on them.  I have no idea how she was able to find the variety of black shirts with roses but she did...and she looked stunning in them.  Her hair was long, jet black and her eyes green.  Her eyes just popped when she wore those shirts.  Her hair is grey now so I had to add that color to the card.  The roses were obviously a must.  It is difficult to look at roses and not think of my mom.

The card used JustRite's Lace Background stamp (CL-03920) embossed in black.  To accentuate the roses, I used copic marker Garnet in the areas shown and applied Stickles.  Spellbinders dies Labels Nine (S4-310), A2 Filigree Delight (S5-177) and Twisted Metals Tags and Accents (S5-071) were also used.  The white Labels Nine die cut was also dry embossed.  The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment is JustRite's Fancy Frames (CL-02070).


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
