Happy Mother's Day

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Morning, friends!  I've got that card I promised you all, in yesterday's Weekend Snapshots post, today.  It was inspired by some new goodies that I was lucky enough to get my hands on last month.  Enjoy!
I started this card by embossing the "happy Mother's Day" sentiment, with Melon Mambo embossing powder, in the center of a piece of multicolored, polka dot, patterned paper.
I then backed a bit of triangle, lace cardstock with lots of color-coordinating, patterned papers and pieced it just below the sentiment bit, before framing the created piece with white cardstock and machine stitching, with bright-pink-threaded, straight stitches, around the sentiment piece.
A length of white, seam binding ribbon was then wrapped around the prepped piece; tied, in a double bow, near the right edge; and embellished with a bright pink button, laced with white chord, tied in a bow.  The entire thing was then adhered, with foam tape, to the white, cardstock, card face to complete the look.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!  Be blessed!
