Messages for Mom

Mother's Day is just a few weeks away, and I am doing a few craft shows so I thought I should make some Mother's Day cards.  April 23rd will be the 20th anniversary of my mother's passing, so this is always a bittersweet month for me.  The set, Messages for Mom, is in the current catalog.  I paired it with the new colored embossing powder (in the Summer Mini, starting May 1) along with some new DSP (also in the summer mini).

I was also searching this morning for a challenge, and happened upon  sketch challenge 43 at  The Paper Players, which seemed to work!  Clean and simple layout...not so simple DSP!

stamps:  SU Messages for Mom
Cardstock:  Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Beyond the Garden DSP
ink:  Versamark, Marina Mist
accessories:  Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder, Scallop Trim Border


  1. Hi Lauri,
    What a pretty card! The mom sentiment looks great embossed and I love that you used the paper for the whole main panel, it is very pretty! So happy you found us and joined us at the Paper Players this week!!!

  2. Such pretty colors. That layout does work wonderfully with the background paper.

  3. Lauri, love your take on the sketch. The bold, bright colors are perfect for Mother's Day and the embossed sentiment works so well against it. Fabulous card.
    So glad you joined the Paper Players this week and shared this fabulous card.

  4. Such a lovely card. I love your choice of designer paper.
