For you, Mom

Happy Mother's Day! I made a card earlier this week to mail to my mom--and had to wait until today to post it here to avoid an accidental sneak peek by Mom! Here's what she received:



I'm playing along with the the latest Power Poppy Power & Spark challenge, which is to "cut it out" (fussy cutting your main image), my second entry in this month's challenge. I'm having a ball with my new Power Poppy stamp sets! The floral image and "for you" sentiment are from Power Poppy's Potted Primroses stamp set. That lovely script "Mom" comes from DeNami Design. I love stitching on my cards, so I added a stitched border around a panel of some ancient Basic Grey patterned paper. And loopy baker's twine bows just make me happy, so that explains that ;).

I hope that all the moms out there enjoy their special "queen for a day" day! And if you can, be sure to send your own mom some extra love today.

Until next time,
Emily

Oh, Emily, I'm loving that you're loving your Power Poppy stamps. The feeling is mutual. This is just beautiful! Love the color pop of orange against the blue, and the very creative way you framed with the stitching but left the space for the sentiment. Nice touch! Happy Mother's Day to you, and thanks for joining our Power Poppy challenge!

Absolutely charming Emily! Love the bold orange Primrose against the turquoise background! And the stitching adds just the right about of extra oompf!! What a beauty!

Emily, this is gorgeous, and what fabulous colors! Your image is beautifully colored and cut, and I love how you've stitched around and left room for the great sentiment! Stunning card! Hugs!

I know your mom loved this card. The flowers are so pretty and your coloring is gorgoeus. The stitching added a nice touch and your twine bow is great.

Emily! You are back blogging!!! I am so happy :)
I love your card. The pretty looped twine looks like an orange butterfly fluttering over the pretty posies. How sweet.
Thank you for sharing! :)
