Getting Ahead...

Well, I'm actually getting ahead on the cards that I will need in the upcoming months!!! Here is the first of the Mother's Day cards:

This image is from Stamps By Judith, and I LOVE it!!! I stamped it onto GP110 white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it using Copic markers. I then cut the image out and sponged the edges using Close to Cocoa ink. The card base is this years' "In-Colors" Soft Suede textured cardstock and is cut to make a 5-1/4" square card. The next layer is Crushed Curry and a layer of Razzberry Lemonade DSP. I put antiqued copper brads (Recollections from Michael's) in each corner and attached a length of Apricot Appeal grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment was stamped, punched out with the tag punch and sponged with Close to Cocoa. Antiqued copper brads were added, then I attached the sentiment and the flower image using dimensionals. I kinda like the color combination...I'll need to make one more Mother's Day card and a birthday card for my mom and my cards will be done through May! Woo Hoo!!
