You should have arrived here from ***Michelle Loncar's Show and Tell, with Michelle***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt also keeps a list of all participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

For our hop I created two cards. The first is the Mother's Day card I plan to give to my mother on Sunday. I love love this floral paper so I had to use a fairly large piece on her card.

I tried to keep thinks simple to let the floral and stamped sentiment shine.

To create the background clouds I sponged though the waste after die cutting the clouds. I sponged ink on the rainbow to get a softer look, "huffed" on the stamp to moisten the ink, then stamped. I create some more interest, after inking the sun with Canary, I dipped the tips of the rays in Pixie.

Before you head to ***Gina Brandstetter's Gina's Little Corner of StampinHeaven***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase the CTMH items I used on my Consultant website.

If you have a few moments, please let me know what you think. I enjoy reading what people think of my artwork. Thank you for hopping with us!
