I Love My Mom

My mom is the best. She is so good to me and I love her to pieces. This card is for her. I combined a few challenges to accomplish this card. The first challenge I found was Just Add Ink and they were calling for "Just add bling and pink" for pink ribbon day coming up Oct. 25th for breast cancer awareness. My mom has actually done The Weekend To End Breast Cancer Walk for the last 4 years and she has been in the top 10 to finish each year so I thought this challenge fitting for this card. The second challenge I came upon was JUGS, which is celebrating their one year anniversary as well as breast cancer awareness month with this great sketch!

These 2 definitely fit together but I threw in one more for extra colour. Pals Paper Arts 63 challenge this week is combining the colours Pear Pizazz, Peach Parfait and Melon Mambo.

Now I was set to go!

I started with one of my favourite techniques of inking up my texture plate from Kit #4. It just adds a little pop to it! Next I pulled out the stamp set Things I Love and omitted the words below each image and added a little bling to each one.

I love this Whisper White Organza Ribbon. It is definitely a go-to ribbon for me. Usually I have a tendency to layer it with another colour but I liked it just the way it was today! I chopped up the little words "but most of all" so I could put just the "...YOU!" on my ribbon for a little accent. A little more bling all over and all done. As you can see I used a ton of dimensionals for this card. I love seeing all the layers!

Have a great day!
