Love for MOM

Hi everyone!  Sorry I've been missing for a little while; life just got in the way a bit.  BUT now I'm back with a lovely little Mother's Day card for this weeks' Card A Day Blog theme.  I had some great fun with Washi Tape on this one, as well as a leftover flower and a butterfly from earlier projects.

I started by pulling several reds from my washi collection and laid a strip of each on a backing paper.  I cut the bottom into a banner 'v' and mounted it on a layer of white with double-sided tape and then on a layer of red with foam tape.  I then added that piece to the card base with the top edges flush to the top of the base.

I stamped the greeting with black ink on white, and then die cut it for a nice shape.  I used the next size nesting die to cut a backing layer in red.  I affixed these pieces together, and then used foam tape for layered mounting.  I colored the flower pieces and lightly colored the butterfly both with Pan Pastels, and gave them some rhinestones for a bit of sparkle.

I wanted to bring just a touch of red to the inside of the card, so I applied a narrow strip to the inside before stamping the sentiment, also in black.  Sorry it looks a little off-kilter; card wouldn't lay flat for the photo.

And that's it; really quite simple.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today; always love a comment!  And don't forget our giveaway at Beccy's Place.  I'll be back tomorrow with another card I created using Beccy's designs -- commenting there, as long as you're a follower of my blog, gives you another chance to win.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope the rest of your day is simply fabulous!!!

'Til next time.....
BIG Hugs!!!
