Mother in Law.....

This card was made for one of my card club customers. She needed it for her MIL, who loves blue flowers. I decided to use my Gina K Spring Blooms stamp set...I had just trimmed it up, and was waiting for the chance to use it!

I actually stamped some extra blooms and added them using dimensionals to give the card a bit more depth. I used my Coluzzle oval template to cut out my ovals. I then stitched them together on my good old Kenmore sewing machine.

I coloured the blooms with my SU! water colour crayons. The ribbon is from CTMH. I used scissors to get the decorative edges on the navy cardstock. The papers are got scrap bin! One of them might be from Anna Griffin, but I can't even be sure about that. Some of the scraps in my bins are older than my children (6 yrs. and 3 yrs), so I can't always be precise about where they came from! Add to that the fact that in the fairly recent past we have lived in three countries, and I really can't hazard a guess! LOL.
Oh, and I almost forgot....this sketch was from over at iheart2stamp on March 29th!
Have a great week!

We love the card! It is just perfect for her. Your photos are great but they don't do the card justice. The layered textures of the ribbons and paper with the flowers popping out are a delight for the eyes and fingers. Thomas especially appreciates how each card feels (now that his vision teacher is helping him use his touch more). Thanks for all your hard work!
