Mom's Birthday

Well, it's been a while since I've made cards. I just really haven't been into it lately. I guess I lost my card-making mojo. I was so into it for the past 4 years, I guess maybe the need to be creative with cards has passed. I've been writing. I guess that is where my creative flow has been going lately. God is so good! When I'm done posting this, I'm going to transcribe more of my latest book. Who knows, maybe God will bless me, and this book will be published too!

Anyway, about mom's card. I used Splitcoast Color Challenge colors for the card. Pear Pizazz, Real Red, and Pink Pirouette. The pear is the base, and red is the mat. I used SU's Bella Blue DSP for the panels, and layered pink pirouette under my main image. I used Pricilla Style's sketch as the design for the card.

I stamped my main image in black, then colored it using blushing bride, pretty in pink, and regal rose. The leaves are in pear Pizazz. The butterfly is pretty in pink and thump-n-rolled real red on it, then I added some dazzling diamonds for some sparkle. I also added sparkle on the flowers using glitter gel pen.

I hope my mom likes it. I even used corner punches on the inside to make it extra special.

Thanks for looking.
