Mother's Day

I'm baaa-aack. Didja miss me, LOL? It looks like my temporary, part-time job is already over (boohoo), so I should have more time for card making (woohoo!).

This card is a variation on the card I did for this month's stampin' club swap. I had thought about doing Mother's Day cards for the swap, but then I figured everyone would be making their own card for their own mom. So, for the swap I made get well cards, and then for this Mother's Day card, I added a few more details, like the pearls and some Cotton Candy Stickles.

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which is absolutely the BEST for using with Copic Markers. NO SMEARING!

I used Bev's card HERE, somewhat, as inspiration. I just adore her coloring, and her use of colors and color combinations are amazing!

I even carried the cover theme over to the inside of the card, ala Bev, using some of the scraps.
