a vase of flowers...

Hey friends!! Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!  Hope you have a wonderful day.  We are going to head out later to spend some time up north of us in the little town of Woodenville, WA.  They have a beautiful nursery called Molbak's and we are going there.  And there will most likely be a few other stops along the way!!  Have a card to share that I made using the current MFT sketch and the colors from ColourQ.   Every week I take a look at the MFT sketch and tell myself that I'm going to make something, but it never happens.  I was determined to play along this week with some yummy new MFT stamps and dies.  I used the MFT Beautiful Blooms stamps and dies for the card.  Using my mini MISTI made it so easy to line up all the little flowers... love it!!   The vase was die cut from white cardstock and then I inked it with some Stampin Up! Coastal Cabana to look like it was full of water.  The flowers and stems were stamped using SU!'s Certain Celery and Rose Red inks, as well as Hero Arts Pale Tomato.   The panel behind the vase of flowers was die cut using an MFT Inside and Out die-namics die.   Love that stitched edge.  To break up all the white I added a panel of kraft cardstock that I embossed with some burlap for a bit of texture.  Finished things up with a little banner stamped with a happy birthday sentiment.  Hmmm... now I think maybe I should have found a "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment!  Since this is a pretty clean and simple card I think I will also add it to the Creative with Stamps line up.





Thanks for stopping by....

Everything is so well balanced on this card. Usually, I see side stripes with pp and I do like how the simple white turned out. Hope you had a wonderful time with your family!
