Happy Sunday! And a Happy Mother's Day to all mothers, grandmothers, pet mamas and any other mom figures :)
Here's this week's sketch. I know the sketch itself uses birthday images, but I still needed to make one last Mother's Day card, so I decided to make it work!
- Card Base: 4-1/4 x 5-1/2
- Frame: 3-1/4 x 4-1/2
- Focal Layer portion: 3-1/8 x 2-5/8
- Plain Layer portion: 3-1/8 x 1-3/4
I used the Simple Sunflowers mini set earlier in the week, and decided I just wasn't quite done with it yet! I stamped the center first using Dark Chocolate. Next I inked up the sunflower image using Bright Buttercup. I added a touch of depth by inking the edges with Summer Sunrise.
For the leaves I used New Leaf. I fussy cut out the flower and leaves. I wanted to add some sort of pattern or texture to the background, so I used an old Swiss Dots embossing folder on some Green Parakeet. The sentiment is from Women of Life (a now retired PTI set)
Stamps: Simple Sunflower, Women of Life
Accessories, etc.: Brown Grosgrain Ribbon, Swiss Dot embossing folder
