"If you want a kitten, start out by asking for a horse."
Today I am sharing a Mother's Day card for my dear Mom-in-law. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful MIL. She enjoys vintage items, so the logical choice for a vintage look is Graphic 45.
I used a complementary color scheme for my card...if purple and gold counts as such! This Dearest Mother image is from the G45 A Place in Time May pages. I used one of the tan calendar pages as my backing and some K&Co. purple patterned paper for the background.
I used my spectacular Gwyneth Flourish from Memory Box with shimmery gold cardstock. Again, you can see how the tendrils curl and lift on their own. Love it!!
I stamped and heat embossed my Victorian Butterfly image in gold onto some subtly patterned cardstock.
For the flower cluster, I used Prima and Pink Paislee flowers. I added some Biscotti Perfect Pearls and a bit of lavender watercolor to the largest flower. Also, I added a stick-on pearl center to one.
The purple ribbon roses were a thrift store find. Hooray!! I can't remember how much the whole spray was (which includes several more blossoms) ..... something like 25 cents. :)
I finished the card with some lovely May Arts shimmery metallic purple sheer ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed my vintage Mother's Day card. I think my Mom-in-Law will love it.
We will be out of town for most of the next week, so I will be absent from my blog. Will you miss me? I will miss you!!!
Have a lovely week!
