Mother's Day

Hello Crafters - I can't believe it, three cards in one week!!

I am not much into mother's day, and when I was showing my classroom assistant my cards she asked if I would make her a mother's day card. I was honored. She's the first person who's ever asked me to make anything.

The set I used here comes from Close to My Heart. I totally don't get any credit for the design. They had a small flyer and this beautiful card was showcased. I loved it the second I saw it and finally had a reason to CASE it. I did do a few things different -- I patiently cut the antenna of the butterfly. Their picture cut them off and I just couldn't see that because they are so elegant looking. I used a different background paper and my card is a different size. I changed the sentiment - I used the word "Mother," and I added the pearls. Either way, I think the card is stunning.

I just love the dress dummy (I know they have an official name - I just don't know what it is). It does remind me of my mother, she had one when I was a kid. Normally I don't post cards that I CASE, but this one is just so beautiful that I had to share.

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day!

This is really pretty Theresa. I remember Mom's! It was the most hideous gold color and black. I think they're called dress forms. Beautiful butterfly.

This is very stylish Theresa :)

The butterfly is beautiful and a perfect touch. I have no idea what the proper name is for the dress dummy either! :) lol.

No wonder your friend asked you to make her a mothers day card, its beautiful.
