Happy Mother's Day

Currently in the Spring issue of Paper Creations, the inspiration for this card started with Cheery Lynn’s lacy die cut background that melted me down to the very soles of my creative sox the instant I first saw it.  Can’t tell you why – it just does.  So brace yourselves, as you’ll be seeing a lot of it in future . . .

The colors are a bit of a departure from traditional Mother’s Day pastels, but when enlivened with a little sparkle in the form of Perfect Pearls Mist plus my enduring favorite – the Clear Star pen – I think this card conveys the lively warmth that Mothers are famous for giving us.
