RSCC #5 - Pinky Pink!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I had lots of quality family time, which is always nice.

Today's card is for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #5. Fantastic colors! I used them as a starting point to make my Mom's Mother's Day card.

The card base is Raspberry Fizz. I used the Guide Lines I grid sheets and started by stamping an image from Guide Lines Two in Smokey Shadow Ink. The fancy circle is from Butterfly Kisses. This is the second generation stamping for these images - I stamped them off once on some scratch paper to get a lighter look. I wanted them to be closer in color to the printed grids on the cardstock.

Then I overstamped the flourish from With Sympathy. This is one of my favorite images, and I can't wait to see more of the new flourish set being released this month from PTI. The flowers are from Everyday Classics, stamped multiple times in Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst ink, trimmed and then layered. I sponged them all with a little Smokey Shadow ink. I used a Copic marker to custom color the adhesive pearls. This piece is layered first onto Hibiscus Burst and then onto a piece of Smokey Shadow that was punched using the Fiskars Upper Crest border punch. Dark gray (custom colored) pearls adorn each crest. Love this punch!

I loved the final product! The Mother sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages and was stamped in Smokey Shadow. I used a few of the stamps from the Mother set to create my own sentiment for the inside.

I had my Mom and Nana (you saw her card last week) over for Mother's Day brunch. Yummy! We always have a nice time when we get together. I am truly my mother's daughter. We are very much alike, and I can't think of a better person to resemble! She is strong and funny and very creative. She is a teacher, and maintains high standards for her students. She is the person I turn to when I need encouragement, advice, to vent, or to feel loved. She's my best friend, and I don't know what I would do without her.

That is me, mom, and my brother. We like to laugh!

Thank you for stopping by today - I hope you have a wonderful night!
