Good morning everyone! Even though Mother's Day is a month away I have a Mother's Day card to show you today.
(click to enlarge)
The image is one of Jane's doodles called Tulips available at Squigglefly. The sentiment is another included in the set of Fancy Sentiments by Nina Brackett that will be included in this Saturday's release.
I printed the image out twice and colored it with Copic markers then popped up the petals for dimension. I scored along the line that divides the petals so I could sort of mold it over the pop dot. One little tip if you do this - print the one you are going to layer on top a little larger than the original. That way when you shape it it will still fit correctly on the main image. Here's a close up of the dimension
I'm not that fond of my layout on this card. I had cut and embossed the circles and was just playing around with them trying to figure out what I wanted to do with them. I ended up cutting them in half still not sure if I even wanted to use them on the card, but in the end this is what I came up with. Not one of my best, but I do think the lady I'm giving this to will like it.
Did you know that Squigglefly is the sponsor of this week's sketch at Two Sketches For You? There's an awesome prize too! The winner will get their choice of one of Jane's Doodles from Squigglefly, plus some of Jane's fabulous home made fimo buttons and 5 Uni-ball Signo Broad White Gel Pens!
There's also a fun challenge going on at the Squigglefly blog this week. Kim has challenged the design team to make a flap card and the design team has come up with some wonderful examples! There's a prize there for you too - so head on over there and give it a try!
And if you still would like something to win, how about stopping by Linda's blog where she is celebrating one year of blogging and her upcoming retirement!
Yesterday we took Riley to a favorite walking trail of mine (because it's shady) and Brock fished for some perch in the little creek that runs by it. Boy, were they biting! I think he caught one every time he threw in and Riley had a blast! I filmed some of it, and as soon as I can I will share that video with you. It was a lot of fun watching her.
I'd like to remind everyone that now is the perfect time to do some flower pressing! With all of the pretty little spring violets popping up everywhere, they really make great spring cards! If you need a reminder on how to do it, you can take a look at this older post of mine HERE.
Well, I hope you have a wonderful day, and as always thanks for looking!
