a mother's day card...

Hello friends!!   We have been having some wonderfully sunny weather here in the Puget Sound area of Washington and it is supposed last into next week!  YAY!!  Even though it has been nice I did find some time to make a Mother's Day card for a couple of challenges:  CAS(E) this Sketch and ColourQ.

 
When I used Rosie Posie last week I had a few die cut pieces that I didn't use and so decided to put them to use on my card.  I stamped the rose image using SU!'s Marina Mist and then added the step 2 image using SU!'s Midnight Muse.  Two smaller roses were die cut and then stamped with SU!'s Wisteria Wonder and Midnight Muse.  The sketch image on the background was stamped using SU!'s Pretty in Pink and a text image from PTI's Background Basics Text Style.  The sentiment from a My Favorite Things/Lisa Johnson Designs set was stamped using Midnight Muse.  Instead of using my usual white card base I decided to use one made from Wisteria Wonder.  A few rhinestones finished things off.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI white, SU! Wisteria Wonder; Inks:  Stamping Up!; Stamps:  PTI and MFT; Dies:  PTI; Rhinestones: Stampin Up!
