Mother's Day Cards



I found a small stash of mulberry paper in my collection, so I've been trying to use it up. I made Mother's Day cards for my MIL and my mom using the same color scheme, although the layouts are different. The first is actually from Technostamper's Sketch 67 last week, but I didn't get it posted in time. The second used the CPS 114 sketch from this week, and also the Use It Challenge #8. For the Use It challenge, we had to use flowers, fibers and metal. I included fibers in the mulberry paper, metal in the flower brads, and Prima flowers. The flower stamp around the scalloped circle and in the background of the sentiment circle are from Verve Floral Whimsy. The centers of the border flowers are dotted with Stickles. The sentiment is CTMH Simple Beauty.

These are both off in the mail today with hopes that they will reach their destinations by Saturday. I hope you are having a good week. Thanks for looking!
