Happy Mother's Day

Today I'm sharing the card I made for my daughter in law for Mother's day and also for several weekend challenges.

A friend of mine ordered the Brutus Monroe, Enchanted Roses background stamp and was showing me how pretty it was.  I replied 'I have that stamp too - don't think it's ever seen an ink pad.'

Now I certainly hope that I'm not the only one that has issues like that?  Stamps that have never been used.... Oh my! 

Well I'm working on it.  I immediately pulled the stamp and decided it was my next project. 

This gorgeous stamped image took quite a while to get it all colored.  But it's so worth the time when done. 

I used Copic markers for coloring and because she is a huge Clemson University fan, I selected ORANGE for the main rose.   When completed, I trimmed the edges and then cut a black mat 1/4" larger than the colored image.  

 I stamped the Happy Mother's Day from the Simon Says Stamp, Wake Up Make Up set.  I used a miscellaneous die for the sentiment and then used a ribbon threader punch on each side.  The coordinating orange organza ribbon slipped easily through the sentiment and then I folded and secured it behind the top layer. 

For the card base I cut the golden 12" x 12" cardstock in half to make the 6" square side fold base. Lastly, the layers were simply secured on the card front and the card is ready to be delivered.
