Happy Mother’s Day


Hi everyone,

It's challenge time over on the Color Throwdown blog. I am back with one last card as their April Guest Designer. It is hard to believe that this is the final week, the month has gone by so quickly and it has been fun to challenge myself each week using the selected colors. Especially as color challenges aren’t the easiest for me.

This week there is another fun color palette to play with.

For my card this week I  used designer papers that were close to the challenge colors and created a starburst effect at the top portion of my card.

The sentiment is from MFT Stamps LJD Sweet Roses stamp set, I love the sentiments included in this set. I used the Die-namics Well Worn Greetings for the layering of the sentiment.


For the inside of my card I added another sentiment from the LJD Sweet Roses stamp set. Along the bottom of the card I added two borders created using the Die-namics Squiggle Border

Here are the MFT products I used on my card today:
