Hello, Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying your day! I needed to work on some inventory this afternoon, after hubby and I had lunch at the park and went for our daily walk, and I knew right away when I sat down I was going to create something for this fabulous color combo going on over at The Color Throwdown. I couldn’t wait to get started because I just love pink, and in this challenge they have two shades of pink paired with cream. Those colors just screamed Mother’s Day card to me. This card was fun to put together.
Here is a front shot of the card.
Details: A few days ago I had a SSS order come in with this fun new stencil from Altenew called Rose Bouquet and a great SSS MOM die-cut, along with maybe a few other things. LOL So since these items were used for the first time, I am going to link my card up over at NBUS also. After I inked my base of my leaves I came back with a Q-tip to give the leaves some more realistic definition with the same Antique linen ink. It worked perfectly. The bottom sentiment is from Paper Roses- Mother’s Day Quotes and I just love it. Not sure I should have inked it in black ( and crooked-grr) but it’s a little late now. LOL I finished it off with a ribbon and some Nuvo drops in groups of 3.
I hope if you are celebrating Easter tomorrow you have a truly wonderful day. Take care, Nanc’

This is beautiful, Nanc’! I love the soft colors and the addition of the cream organza ribbon softens everything even further. A perfect floral design for Mother’s Day! And I didn’t even notice the sediment was crooked, still don’t if I’m honest! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Enjoy the rest of your week! Hugs, Darnell
