Mother's Day

This week is my first challenge as a new Design Team member over at Made Especially for You and we have a weekly challenge for you today... Create a Mother's Day card using ribbon.  I used the Tulip Buggies image from our sponsor, Meljen's Designs for my card.

This week our randomly chosen winner will receive four (4) non-colored images of their choice from our sponsor Meljen's Designs.

My card is a 5" x 5-1/2" black card base.  I printed the digi image twice at 4" x 5" on white and colored both in with the following Copic Ciao markers:

G00, G02, G05, YR00, YR02, YR04, RV02, RV04, B00, B23, Y00, Y02, Y06, C-1, C-5

One image is for the card and the other one I used to cut out the bees, tulip, leaves, bird and two small flowers to mount on top on the one for the card.

I cut the scalloped green gingham paper from my Cricut "Just Because" Cards cartridge, page 52 <Truck-s> at 5-1/2" .  The green gingham corner is cut at 2-1/2".  The sentiments are both from Close to My Heart.  I stamped both with Memento Black Tuxedo ink on to tag and a 1-3/4" circle punch.  Layer all paper pieces as shown in the photo, working back to front.

Finishing touches adhesive pearls from Recollection, white polka dotted orange grosgrain ribbon, green safety pin and white gel pen for hi-lights on the tulip and leaves.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a great week.

Catch the Frenzy!

  3. Love the bright and cheerful look of this card and all of the extra little details too!

  4. Such a beautiful card! I just love these colors together. When I think of red and green together, I sure do think about Christmas but this does not have that feel to it at all. I just love it! I'm going to be adding this to my color pallet for sure! : )


  5. Karen, WOW, what a treat your designs are. You have a very "happy" style and very creative. I enjoyed peeking around your blog. Your a very talented gal!! Pixie HUGS<3
