Always Mother

     Today I am really happy to share my mother's day card with you.  I made this for my mother-in-law who is a treasure that has recently come to live with us.  We are sharing a bedroom right now and it's like a slumber party every night.  I managed to make this card when she was occupied elsewhere (watching Mass on tv).

     This card is also an inspiration piece for Red Rubber Designs Inspirational #118 - Mom.   There is still time to join this challenge just pop on over with your Mom inspired card and link up on the Red Rubber Inspirations Blog


     I used Red Rubber Design's, Mother's Face background stamp for text on this card which was stamped in Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  I stamped Red Rubber Design's Lovely Peony over that using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.   The pale pink ink gives a beautiful shadowed flower behind the script from Mother's Face.

     I created the roses using two different sized rolled rose dies and added some punched leaves and die cut vine flourishes.  The layers for this card were each distressed and inked around the edges with foam tape adding dimension under the center of each layer.

     This card is entered into the following challenges:

                                             Lovely Peony
My Favorite Things Rolled Rose Large and Medium
Cheery Lynn Vine Flourish
Martha Stewart Leaf Punch
