Mother's Day Cards & KWCIC #51

Here's 2 Mother's Day cards I did last night based on the Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge. I love these challenges, especially when I'm on a time crunch like I am right now... It really helped me to get focused and get 'em done!

On this first card, I used SU stamps (Packet Silhouettes & Lexicon of Love), SU Ink in More Mustard and Staz-on Timber Brown. The scalloped square was punched from my 6x6 pad of BG Euphoria, the crocheted ribbon is from Fancy Pants and I used a random fuschia fiber in my supply.

PP on this one was from the DCWV '09 Spring Stack, Michael's ribbon, and the stems and leaves were stamped from the Botanical Blooms SU stamp set. Ink colors are all SU: More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, and Pink Passion. I used plain white Prima mini-flowers and colored them using the same colors in my SU markers.


  1. The ribbons are so stunning. Beautiful cards.

  2. ooo la la I love the one with the striped ribon....yum!

  3. Both cards look so cute! :)
