My mother, my friend...the reason I am here today!!!

Hello everyone! Here I am again to share a card I made for my mom. Yes, it is a little bit early to be making mother’s day cards ~ I know! I guess that I was so inspired by this beautiful pink patterned paper and  Melissa's photo color challenge. It is amazing how much inspiration you can get from a picture or a color palette!

This paper doesn’t belong to a particular paper collection. I know that the person who designed this paper is Anna Griffin; I think I got it from Archivers a couple of weeks ago. I used my new UK success punch to create a little bit of movement to the bottom of my card.

I must say that the ribbon is not as brighter as it appears to be on the picture,  it is a little bit softer ~ trust me!  At first, I wanted to make a bow, but soon I changed my mind because this ribbon is too wide. Well, I didn’t want the bow to be the focal point. I thought that adding just a piece of the ribbon to the card would add a nice touch to it.

I made a little tag to stamp the scalloped image and the sentiment. This card uses PTI polka dot stamp to create the background on the tag. I added gems around the scalloped image too. Then the flower, the button, and of course twine to make a little bow around the flower.

Okay girls, I have to go now! Thanks for coming back again to check my blog and for the beautiful comments you have left for me. I really appreciate your kind words…

Enjoy your day!
