Mother's Day Card


moms day 101, originally uploaded by kbyers1903.

This is the card I made for my Mom this year. She usually doesn't read my blog until the week end so I should be safe, and she won't see here before she sees it in person.
I used a Page Maps sketch (from November of 2005) for the layout of this card. The background paper is Prima, from the Shabby Chic collection. I gave it a little spritz of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, in Piece of Heart. The script strip in the middle is actually a background stamp that I stamped on pink paper, then clear embossed and finally rubbed ink all over to give it a vintage-y /grunge-y sort of look. This is so far from my normal style but I thought I'd give some new things a try. It never hurts to mix things up now and then and get out of your comfort zone.
