Happy Monday! It wasn't the brightest sunny day we've ever had today but the temperature got up a little higher. I am always pleased when it's warm enough without a coat. By mid-week we are supposed to be up in the 80s. I am not about to complain because it's nit snowing! LOL! It's been great walking weather. That helps my weight loss if I can get out and do a little exercise.
My card today is for Mother's Day.
I saw something similar over at KWerner Design Blog. My MIL is very big on purple and I was going to use purple plaid but my printer wasn't cooperating. So I found this deep purple scrap in my scrap bin. Then I embossed the sentiment on the yellow band. It's from Gina K "Notes to Mom." The flowers are also from a Gina K set called "Spring Florals." I colored them with Copics (BV0000, BV01, Y08, and YG09). And believe it or not I then cut my band too short. What was I thinking? But after I looked at it long enough I kind of liked it because you could see more of the pattern in the purple paper so I went ahead and used it. I outlined the DP with a white gel pen and the band with a slim black marker. Pretty easy peasy!
I am entering this card into these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll have an awesome week!
