Happy Mother's Day

Yay for Thursday!

That means I only have to get up early for one more day this week.  I love sleeping in, don't you?  Anyway, I have another quick post so that I can share another card I made last Saturday while at my friend Joni's.  I wanted to break away from the traditional Mother's Day card, and here is what I wound up with.

I've had some Pixielicious paper for a while now.  I'm happy with how this came together, using those papers.  I stamped the gorgeous Verve flower onto some patterned paper, cut it out and popped it up using dimensionals.  I absolutely love the textured leaves on this.  I think they add a nice touch, and more dimension, without being bulky. 

That's it for me today.  I'll be back on Saturday with another project for you.  Have a great day!

Beautiful Mother's Day card, Steph! Your leaves are perfect - pure genius! May have to steal that idea sometime! Hope your weekend is low key and you have time to relax! I'm volunteering at a Women's Wellness Weekend at the YMCA in a town about 40 min. away on Saturday. Will be on my feet all day helping folks scrapbook! I'll think of you all tucked in...hugs!

Oh, I love this Steph! Love that textured 'leafiness' to offset the patterns - perfecto!
