One Layer Wednesday... For Mom

Today I'm posting my card for One Layer Wednesday (OWL22).  This week Susan was all about gratitude and on Wednesday challenge us to make a one layer card to thank a special mom in our life.  Could be our mom, mother in law, sister, etc.   I decided to make the card for my mom.  I have always appreciated her advice (which she only provides upon being asked!) and the fact that she gives her love unconditionally. Aside from being a good mom, she is a very good gardener and her yard was always a riot of color throughout the year.  There are some flowers that she likes more than other, Lily of the Valley being one.  I have had PTI's Lily of the Valley set for sometime now and finally inked it up for the card.  I stamped in it Memento's Rich Cocoa and then colored it with Prisma pencils and the blender pencil.  I stamped the sentiment (a combination of "mom" from PTI's Women of Life and a sentiment from Lily of the Valley) in black ink to make it stand out more.   I know she will enjoy receiving this card.

Thanks for taking a peek... hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Supplies:  PTI Kraft cardstock; Stamps:  PTI Lily of the Valley & Women of Life; Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa; PTI True Black, Prisma pencils.

So nice to have a mom who only gives advice when asked. Mine was the same way and I always appreciated that. I love that you'll give this to your mom just because....no special occasion.... that's the best! It's such a beautiful card too, Rosie! She'll love it!

Lovely, lovely card, and my favorite flower. I can't make it grow, but I know it grows wild in some parts of the USA.

I have a blender pencil...but I'm not nearly as skilled at using it are you are. This is beautiful. I love that stamp...I say that every time I see it used and it really looks awesome on the kraft cardstock. Fabulous card!
