Mother's Day card


Well this card was inspired by the Accordion Card on the Papertake Weekly Challenge last week, that Jukie clued me in on for an idea, and then I looked today before I uploaded and my card seems to fit this week's challenge too! So I am going for it - I can only be wrong (right?) and if I am I'm sure I can live with it either way! LOL

This card was made with some bold DP that I don't know the make of (I would hate to admit how long I have had it)! layered on some DCWV pastel green and lavender cardstock. The dotted organza ribbon is from Michael's and the stamps are Stampedous, Inkadinkadoo, and Hero Arts. The ink is Tsukineko 's Versamagic Dew Drop chalk ink in Spring Pansy and Aloe Vera. AND yes the dots in the flower inspired me to use the dotted organza! Oh and they don't show on the flower so much but each dot in the center of the stamped flower on the front has a dot of glitter glue on it for a bit of BLING!
You can't quite make it out but I used the stamp on the front again on the last "topper" that we wrote messages on for my mother. Hope you like!
Ingredients
Cardstock - DCWV, Georgia Pacific, unknown patterned paper (let me know if you know!)
Ink - Tsukineko's Dew Drop in Spring Pansy and Aloe Vera
Stamps - Inkadinkadoo, Stampendous, Hero Arts
Ribbon - Michael's
