For a Special Mother - Lavender Garden

Hi, Friends......

Squeezing in a late evening card.....and hoping all the ladies out there had a nice Mother's Day! Even you gals who don't have kids of your own have a huge influence on the young people in your circles. So I am honoring ALL ladies today with a special note of appreciation for the many things you do for those around you.

I made a pretty card with a DCWV Chateau Lavender patterned cardstock panel. I love the restful look of this stack on kraft. I think it looks esp nice with a touch of vintage style ribbon and a sprig of die-cut foliage.

Supplies used include:
Mother's Day stamp from my stash prob from dollar bin at a craft store
Versafine ink in Toffee
Panel from DCWV Chateau Lavender stack
Verve - Sprightly Sprigs die set (retired)
Ribbons and shimmer cardstock from my stash
Core'dinations/Darice cardstock for card base

Hope you liked this card. Have a lovely Mother's Day!!!

  5. Ooh, I had no idea this paper was by DCWV and found myself wondering which Graphic 45 collection graced this card. I always love a vintage look, and the ribbon and lavender print give it a touch of sweetness!
