Happy Mom’s Day card


My mother doesn’t read my blog (I would be completely bowled over if she even knew what a blog was!) so it is safe to post her card today.

This is a pretty quick acetate card. The put a piece of white cs on the back so I had something to write on and then piece the front together from papers from Upsy Daisy’s Tweet line. I love these little birds!! Both panels are from Calm and I just used the front and back of the paper. Perfect coordination! The color match perfectly with the reversible light blue/parrot green ribbon so I made a little bow to show off both sides of the ribbon.

I placed little pearls in the centers of the flowers and on the little ends of the swirl under the greeting. The words and swirl are from a cutie little set that is perfect for this time of year called Happy Greetings and are stamped in Palette Burnt Umber.

This is being mailed off today with her gift. Hope you’ve made your cards already!

Thanks for stopping by! See you again on Friday!
