Because of You

Since Mother's Day is just around the corner...yeah, really it is...just 2 weeks away...I decided to do a Mother's Day card for the 5th Sketch Challenge over on the April Release Beach Party.

This card is sooooo not my typical style as it's a floral...but since mom's like that kind of stuff, I decided to break out of the box! LOL!

The card features one of the sentiments from the Because of You set by Verve. I just bought this set because I discovered I didn't have any Mother's Day stamps! That was a shocking discovery and one I was quick to rectify! LOL!

I distressed and sponged the edges of the designer paper and the Very Vanilla layer. I used Soft Suede for all the inking and FINALLY used some of my hydrangeas that I've had in my stash for ever so long.

Card Details
Because of You (VERVE)
Soft Suede(SU)
Paper: CS-Mellow Moss and Very Vanilla (SU); DP- "Mirabelle Floral" (The Paper Studio)
Labels 8 Nestabilities, sponge, distresser, brass brads, hydrangeas and wine sheer ribbon (CTMH)

I'm actually going to fiddle with this card, because it's not quite the way I want it yet...I'll come back and switch the photos once I get it how I like it.
