For my Mom

The Rules by wannabcre8tive:

The colors for the challenge card for this week will be rose red, black and white. It must be floral, can be made with any size card. It has to have some sort of circle on it. It can be a big circle, little circle, half circle, 1/4 circle or what ever you choose.

I didn't have a stamp block that was the right size for the CHF backgrounder, so I tried to use the plate from my big kick, but it may have been a bit too skinny and it didn't stamp great, but I still think this is a beautiful stamp, perfect for this challenge and for Mother's Day!

This card measures 5 1/4 x 6 1/4. I don't really like the ribbons, but felt like something was needed there. There are gemstones on the swirls around the Mother's Day Sentiment. The scallops are made with full circles and there are gemstones in between each of them. TFL!! Hope you like, Mom did, but that's how Mom's are and then she read the inside and cried! That's when you know you wrote something good. She actually used to go to the store and read the cards till she cried and then she knew that was the one. So that's what's really Important.

I also bought her some stamps from HM. It was my first time ordering from there and I would definitely recommend doing business with Dick, he is awesome. I was so impressed with the low prices, quick responses and fast shipping. Then he sent me an awesome follow-up e-mail welcoming me as a customer. The best service I ever had. I also e-mailed him again the morning and received a response very quickly! Here's the web site:http://www.hmstamps.com/index.htm

Happy Mother's Day!! There was no time limit, so I'm not even late!!!


Stamps: CHF backgrounder Shady Daisy, All Holidays
Paper: rose red, black and white
Ink: rose red, black

Looks like the plate worked great as a substitute acrylic block. Your card is gorgeous.
