Mother's Day Card for my Mom



Hello everyone. My DIL is out of the hospital, the Grandkids are back home, and now my house is just tooo quiet......so I cranked up the radio and stamped all day....Whoohoo!!!

I'd like to share the Mother's Day card I made today for my Mom. This is the first time I used my Tombow markers to watercolor and I just LOVE them!!! The colors are gorgeous and they blend beautifully!!! The image was sent to me my Michelle Rodgers from Stamper's Dream....thanks you sweet thang!!!









The background paper is from Doodlebug and the lavender cardstock which was run through the Cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss folder is Prism's Intense Amethyst. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up! set called Fancy Flexible Phrases and shear black ribbon, punched flourish, and black pearls finish it off.
Thanks for visiting tonight and now I gotta get back to Dancing with the Stars!!!
