Belated Mother's Day

Happy Weekend!

I had a friend ask for some belated Mother's Day cards, so I made these two.


On this first one, you'll notice the same background as I used in yesterday's sympathy card. It really is my favorite background stamp, and I love how versatile it is! (Plus I had stamped and embossed a whole half sheet, so I had enough for two cards!)


And a monochromatic card in two of my current favorite colors. You can't tell very well in the photo, but the inside of each bloom has some glitter.

Thanks for looking!

I love the colors of the first one Melissa...soothing yet beautiful. And that Faux Fun BG stamp is FABULOUS! The well-placed buttons just bring it all together.
The lavender moon looks so good with RV. Pretty, pretty, pretty especially with that dabs of glitter!

These are SO pretty, Melissa! You are the QUEEN of embossing! It just makes everything look more detailed. I really should try it more often! Great cards!
