Mother's Day is the 3rd of April here in Ireland and in the UK, so I made this card for my mom. She loves warm colors especially sunny yellow hues and warm reds. The color challenge this week at Color Combos Galore #185 was just the perfect palette for my card, the challenge also included the use of some non-traditional pattern.
I also used the sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC110) as my starting point.
The flower I made using Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz Die - Tattered Florals. The paper is from an old Cosmo Cricket set Honey Pie but I only discovered it recently! The centre is a fabric covered button from my stash.
The wooden leaves are from Kaisercraft. The edges are brown so I'm hoping that counts as my brown color for the color palette!
The yellow paper is also from Honey Pie by Cosmo Cricket. I just added some texture using Swiss Dots embossing folder and lightly sanded the top.
The labels are all from Very Vintage Labels No.18 by Waltzingmouse Stamps stamped in lemon yellow. I cut them out by hand because I don't have that die, not too tricky though! The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases by Waltzingmouse Stamps.
Now, we're off out to the garden to make the most of the sunshine, planting some potatoes and onions in the veggie patch.... it's back to the usual rain tomorrow. Have a lovely day! : )
