Mother's Day...

Using the Mother's Day Challenge over at Late Night Stampers, I've combined SSC # 148 from Stamping 411 - http://stamping411.blogspot.com - to come up with a card suitable for Mother's Day. 

Of course, how can you go past Stampin' Up!s® "5th Avenue" stamp set for mother's day, but then that is me!

My Card -
 Supplies -
Stamp Set - 5th Avenue
Ink - Melon Mambo* Pink Pirouette
Cardstock - Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Embossing Folders - Perfect Polka Dots*
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Grosgrain Ribbon - Pretty in Pink
 *  Autumn-Winter Mini-Catalogue 2010

I've kept the cut out flower from "5th Avenue" very plain, as I didn't want to take the whole effect away from the background.

For the greeting, I typed "For You" on the pc, printed & then attached using a very thin piece of Whisper White cardstock.

TIP - Cardstock cut into very narrow strips make for a great thread.  Colour co-ordinate and use it for your buttons, labels, etc

Until next time, Enjoy!

Beautiful card, I love the clean simple look it has. I really like how it almost looks like a reflection of the flower you stamped in the top corner. Great card:)
