Hello!  Today I am sharing the card that I made for my mom for Mother's Day. I went very simple and tried a new to me technique that I have seen popping up on Pinterest. I thought it looked really fun.

I started by die cutting the word "Mom" out of my Silhouette. I then attached it to the card front and used Wplus9's Hope Seed Co stamps to stamp over the word. I used Prismacolor pencils to color in the flowers Then I took a cool gray colored pencil and went around the word to give it some dimension. I am really pleased with how this card came out and I can see more of these types of cards in my future. It was really relaxing to do.

Here is a closer look.

Here are some links to others who inspired me:
