It is time for Flourishes Release Week Challenge. This month the challenge is "Words To Your Mother". Create a card with a sentiment as your main element. Make it something you would love to say to your mother in honor of Mother's Day. Then upload to to the Flourishes blog for a chance to win the entire new release.
This next week our family will be celebrating the graduation of my oldest daughter from the College of Business at University of IL. I am very proud out her and know that my mom is going to be "with" us in spirit that day. If she were here she would say these very words to my daughter. So on that special day in memory of my mom I will give this card to my daughter. My mom was always such a big part of my life and helped me live my dreams.
Love you mom and miss you.
For this card I chose Flourishes sentiment set called Life Lines. The designer paper is from the Pixie Paper Pad. I added some pearls and pink plaid ribbon to my card.
I used the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle dies for my card base. I just folded my paper and placed my die above the fold on one end. I love the way this worked. Then I added some pink leave cut with the On The Vine Border Grand Dies from Spellbinders. I cut everything out using my Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine.
