I Love My Mom

Join us this week for a Themed Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  This week we want you to create a project that honors a special mom in your life.

I made a card and a matching envelope.  I used a bright yellow color (So Saffron) because it makes me think about joy, hope, thoughtfulness, love, kindness, fun, honesty, reliability and so much more.  Really, it makes me think of my mom!!!  She is my best friend and I am so thankful for her!!!  She is beautiful inside and out and I am so truly blessed to call her mom!!!

Even though this card is for her, I hope she reads this blog post.  She's not a big blogger, but I know she'll occasionally check up on me and see what I've been up to.   This will be her card for Mother's Day this year.  :)

Here is the matching envelope.  I used my new diagonal score plate.  So easy and it makes a nice pair with the card.  Notice the ribboned edge of the flap and the sweet little pearls accenting the flower.

Happy Mother's Day MOM!!  I love you!!

Colors:  So Saffron, Whisper White
Stamps: Something To Celebrate (Retired)
Accessories:  Two Tags and Daisy Die Cuts, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Organza White Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Subtles Collection DSP in So Saffron, Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate

Happy Stamping,
