Happy mother's day

Saturday April 22, 2017
Hope you're having a happy weekend.
I was playing in my craft room and thought I better get some mother's day cards made..
My mother passed away 9-1/2  years ago.  It's really hard making mother's day cards. But I was thinking of her when I made this. She loved pinks and pastel colors. 
I stamped the Simon Says flowers, leaves and hearts and embossed with white embossing powder. I then used my copics to color them in. You really cant see it too well but I used a light blue copic behind the flowers to give some depth. Guess I should of used a little darker one but was afraid it would over take the flowers. I added some Nuvo drops and then colored a strip of paper with copic color used for the flowers and heat embossed the sentiment in white. I layered the card.

Gorgeous card, I also find it hard to make Mother's Day cards for the same reason. those roses are beautiful as is the design. Thanks for playing along with us at Shopping Our Stash for the Rose challenge.

This is beautiful, and it's special that your mom was in your thoughts as you made it-- sometimes that is peaceful and therapeutic. I do see the blue in the background and it sets those roses off brilliantly. Thanks for sharing at Shopping Our Stash this week. 💓
