It was a blazin' hot 91 degrees here in the Richmond area today (at least according to my car's thermometer)!! It certainly didn't feel like May 2 that's for sure. I kept wishing the pool was open so the boys and I could go cool off. Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit cooler!
My card today is one I made over the weekend using last week's Colour Q Challenge. The challenge colors were Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, Bravo Burgundy and Very Vanilla. I saw these colors and thought they looked good together, then I looked closer at the Bravo Burgundy and was like "Gah!". Bravo Burgundy is not a color I use very often and usually just on Christmas cards or if it shows up in a challenge. It took me a while but I got it done! And the Bravo Burgundy doesn't look terrible does it....granted it's a VERY small amount but still! =)
I have quite a few Mother's Day cards to make and send every year and I try not to wait until the last minute to get them made. I have a few checked off my list with a few more to go. This one was pretty quick once I figured out what to do with the Bravo Burgundy!
The base is Very Vanilla embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Then I cut a Labels Framelit and embossed the edge which doesn't show up well in the photo. I then stamped the sentiment in Bravo Burgundy ink.
I used the Beautiful Wings embosslit and cut out the butterflies using the other challenge colors. They are each adhered with a tiny bit of dimensionals and accented with some adhesive pearls.
I really like the clean look of this card. The pops of colors work against the neutral background.
Don't wait to get your Mother's Day cards made!
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
