Mother's Day take two

I contemplated making two identical Mother's Day cards, but decided that would be no fun {grin}.

Instead, I went back to the MFTWSC sketch from last week. I was away for 4 days and just didn't have time to make anything, but I LOVE the sketch and really wanted to use the MFT Vertical Greetings set again - there was a  new set in the May release and I didn't hesitate to add it to my shopping cart.

Here is a look at the sketch:

And my creation:

The dark pink color is not quite pink/not quite peach, which made it a bit of a challenge to match the flowers. The Coach store is calling this color "geranium", but this isn't what I picture when I hear "geranium" - is it what you picture?

I continue to dig into my stash for embellishments. The resin flower & some of the paper flowers are Recollections from Michaels and some are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pearl swirl is a little leftover bit from somewhere. All the papers are from Echo Park Victoria Gardens 6x6 paper pad.

I stickled the edge of the die cut panel and the sentiment circle for a little sparkle and some of the edges were inked with either Memento Tuxedo Black or Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Totally STUNNING! This is really professionally put together! I am in awe! Love the papers and the die shapes. And no, not the color I see in my mind. It's like that Copic marker that they call marigold but it's purple! WHAT?!

  2. I really like how this turned out! I have this set too and you've inspired me, (again) to get this out and do something with it!


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
