SweetStamps #116


Good morning sweeties-
Tuesday is here already!!! 
Can you believe that Mother's Day is next weekend?
Buddy came home from running errands with dad today and told me that they had a surprise for me!!
Really?  A surprise?! He said: YEP, it's a necklace!!!  LOL
So I already know what my Mother's Day present is.  I have a necklace with all my boys birthstone.
So this year we are adding Tommy's stone to it.  So that is the necklace he is referring too.
With that being said, this weeks theme at SweetStamps is:
FOR MOM

I just LOVE how this card came together!!  I had a different idea in mind, with lots more die cuts flowers and pearls, but once I finished coloring the image, the idea completely changed. I stamped the Vase with Memento ink and created a mask for it.  I stamped the Rose and Bow Bouquet, on top of the mask too look a bouquet of flowers in a vase.  It really came out very, very good.  Colored the flowers with my Copics.  The vase was created using patterened paper from  Glitz: Cashmere Dame. Added pearls to the centers of the flowers and surrounding the flowers.  Stitched my card to the TH cardstock and adhered it to kraft cardstock.  Stamped the sentiment with Memento ink and backed it with the same TH red cardstock and placed it across the vase.
