May Mother's Day Card with Big Bow




Hi, Friends......

Still catching up on blogging Mother's Day cards while it is still May.  I got into a purple Graphic 45 frenzy and made a whole stack of cards using the fabulous vintage designs from this same Place in Time collection.  Swoon!!!

Here's the Mother's Day card that we gave to hubby's mom.  I loved this large corner design off of the May sheet but wasn't quite sure if it would work by itself on a card because of its size.  I took the plunge and went for a square format to let the background show.  I topped it off with pearls and a big shimmery bow and really like how it turned out. This square card was hand delivered so it didn't need special care in packaging or extra postage.  Yay!!

I am entering this no-stamping card in the Unstampabelles 1-2-3 challenge:  I used 1 word ("May"), 2 panels  (G45 focal and purple background), and 3 pearls. 


Products used include:
Graphic 45 Place in Time collection
DCWV scrap for purple background panel
WRMK Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper
Want 2 Scrap - Adhesive Pearls
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain for distressing panel edges
Shimmery purple ribbon from stash

Thank you for stopping by!!  I hope your weather is as lovely where you are as it is here.  So many are experiencing some severe storms......or even volcanoes!!  Stay safe if you are in those areas.
