For a Special Lady


This week we celebrated a birthday in our home - that of my twin boys who turned fifteen! Where does the time go?

Today I am sharing a Mother's Day card. I used a stampset - Painted Flowers - from a brand new company named Altenew and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set - Best Mom Ever.

The layering stamps were so fun to use - a little tricky at first, but Tasnim provides a chart showing the placement of the layers for each flower. After a little practise it was easier to do. I am looking forward to seeing future releases from this company! The Hero Arts ink colours used were Soft Pool and Pool for the flowers and Soft Leaf and Soft Olive for the leaves.

Naturally, I covered the diecut from Simon Says Stamp with A Wink of Stella to provide shimmer. Can you tell I love that stuff?!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
