Mother's Day Card

Though I had to work on Mother's Day, I think I still managed to spend a decent amount of time with my amazing and wonderful mom. Earlier this week I planted some flowers in a half barrel pot and left it in our sun room (because it is still a little too cold for plants at night here). I had hopelessly hoped that perhaps my mom would not notice it until Mother's Day, but of course it was one of the first things she saw after getting home that day (I had to do it early because it was my only day off!). The real surprise was this card and the necklace that I created for her. I will share pictures of my polymer clay necklace creation in the near future, but here is the card!
I went for a kind of shabby chic theme with this card. My mom's favourite colour is blue, so I had to incorporate that. The black accents give it a sort of edgy look I think :) I love this Basic Grey bird cage stamp! I embossed it with black powder.
I made the black rose using the smallest flower on Tim Holtz's tattered florals die. I added some silver perfect pearls to make it glimmer.
I hand-wrote the sentiment and cut it out like a banner (love doing this lately!).

I hope you all got to spend some quality time with your moms yesterday! I believe that we should treat everyday as mom's day! Not sure that I have time to make a card for her everyday though... hehe!

Fantastic job, Heather! I'm sure your mom was thrilled to have such a personalized and special gift from such a wonderful daughter such as yourself...
