For my mom

This is the card I made for my mom:

I've used the retired Happy Times paper from Close to My Heart, then I've used the tag dies and squre dies from Lawn Fawn.  The flowers are stamps from Altenew.  Boy, I can't tell you how many times I've practiced stamping those layered flowers before I finally found one that's acceptable.

They are fun to play with, and the end result is gorgeous but I needed a lot of practice.  I didn't have the Altenew inks that were designed to work with these stamp sets (its a set of inks of the same family, i.e. light to dark blue), so I have to see which combination of ink pads in my stash works well.  It took me a while to figure that out.

It's all worth it.  It's for my mom, who is my role model, my best friend, and also my biggest fan.

Thanks for stopping by!
