Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #118 - Penny's "Mom" Theme Challenge

Today the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge has a theme challenge for you.  With it being so close to Mother's Day, Penny challenged us to create a project with the them "Mom".  Appropriate, don't you think?

To the card base of Tip Top Taupe, I added a layer of the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.  On a layer of Shimmery White, I stamped the silhouette image and sentiment from the Penny Black stamp set So Blessed using Night of Navy ink.  The hat and ribbons were colored using the Sweet Sugarplum Stampin' Write Marker.  The little butterflies are from the Stampin' Up! stamp set In the Meadow and stamped in Night of Navy ink.

For the flowers, I stamped images from the Stampin' Up! stamp sets Flower Shop and Petite Petals onto Whisper White cardstock using Night of Navy ink and Sweet Sugarplum ink.  Then, I punched them out using the Pansy Punch and the Petite Petals Punch.  I punched two Night of Navy and one Sweet Sugarplum shapes from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and added them to the center of the flowers.  Then, I added a touch of Golden Sunset Glitter Drops by Nuvo.

    1. Thanks, Judy! Perfect theme for this time of the year.

  2. I love the vintage look of your Mother's Day card Marsha. My mom would have loved the woman's silhouette and those little butterflies along with the flowers. What a nice mix of colours and florals you've combined for this great card. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Penny! My mom liked silhouettes, too.
