Freshly Made Sketches #85 & Dynamic Duos One Year Anniversary

Happy Sunday,

I would like to wish all the Mom's a Happy Mother's Day!  I'm having company coming over today, so I wanted to post my card before they arrive!  The fabulous sketch is from Narelle over at Freshly Made Sketches, and I picked a past Dynamic Duos color combo, Regal Rose and Basic Grey, since they are celebrating their One Year Anniversary!  YAY!

My card:


The base is Whisper White, followed by Basic Grey cardstock.  The only grey patterned paper I had was this polka dot by Echo Park.  I embossed the strip of Regal Rose cardstock that is on top of the card with Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.  This is one of my favorite folders..so elegant and perfect for a Mother's Day card.  I stamped the leaves with Memento London Fog ink.  The gorgeous flowers were stamped with Regal Rose ink.  I stamped the flower once on a piece of paper, and the 2nd time onto the card, to give it a lighter shade.  I also used pink polka dot patterned paper for the 3 flags.  The sentiment is from SU! Wonderful Mother. To finish off my card, I added 2 small pearls to the flowers. 

This card is for my mother-in-law.. I hope she likes it.

Thanks for stopping by,
