Happy Mother's Day!

This is the card my mom and mother-in-law are receiving today for Mother's Day. I received this stamp at the recent SCS WNY stamping event I went to. You can see pictures and cards from that event here. We each received 3 stamps donated by Rubbernecker. I had seen this one before on SCS, and when I opened my bag and saw it in there, I was excited! But as I sat down to use it, I was intimidated until I saw Jeanne Streiff use it just the other day. It's posted on her blog here. I totally cased her image, but did a different layout. I used mostly the same copics, but didn't have a couple, so I improvised. This image was surprisingly easy to color once I had the colors chosen (which Jeanne did for me)! I also used her idea of sponging the image while it was still in the Nestability. You get that nice white rim around it. So cool! I used PTI's Polka Dot Basics in Pretty in Pink for the background. I was going to used patterned paper, but it was too busy. I really like this polka dot stamp. It's subtle enough but gives the background some texture. The sentiment is from SU's All Holidays and I tied it with the ribbon slide from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware. (I just read on SU's demonstrator website that the finishes on the HPH in the Spring/Summer catalog are being retired, so get yours before they go!) The green ribbon is from Michael's and I tied a piece of SU's pink taffeta ribbon with it. There are Crystal Stickles all over this card! I love shine and glitter on my cards! I also made this a 5.25" square card because of the larger image. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Mother's Day!
