Happy Mother's Day



I had a few minutes last night to get a card together for the current Retro Sketches #9 Challenge and combined it with the CR84FN53 color challenge.  I had the sketch opened in my browser for a few days and knew I wanted to make a Mother's Day card.




I really love this sketch and the possibilities for it.  I pulled out a favorite stamp set to color-the One Person set from Verve Stamps.  Love coloring these flowers and am thinking of making a set of these cards with various sentiments.  

For my twine I used my Teal & White twine and pulled the white & teal apart and then colored the white with my R83 twine to get it the color I wanted.  Hoping the jewels look ok on this card, I like them but wishing I had a few more sizes to work with in that color as my little one is itty bitty.  



Happy Hump Day!  Hope your week is going well and you are finding some crafty time.  Thanks for stopping by and saying "hi"!
