Mojo Monday Mother's Day Card
This week's Mojo Monday sketch was perfect for the card I had in mind for Mother's Day. I knew I wanted to use hexagons to create a quilted look ever since I saw something like it in Paper Crafts 350 Cards & Gifts issue. (see pg. 26 if you have it)
Here's this week's sketch...
I love all the different possibilities for various embellishments in this sketch.
Here is my card for Mom...
This is a 5 x 7 card using Grey Wool and soft pinks and grays from Tim Holtz's Vintage Shabby paper stash. Thanks to my Creative Memories consultant and friend Tina Euler, I was able to make the hexagon shapes with her punch that I borrowed.
The sentiment comes from the Verve stamps that I won earlier this month on the Mojo Monday sketch challenge! It's called "Wishing You" and it's just beautiful. I know I'll get a lot of use from this set.
I inked all the edges with Grey Wool and Blush inks. The fuzzy white strands at the top are White Daisy Sassy Strands, now retired, from Close To My Heart. The pretty ribbon and pink flower are from my local craft store.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your day!
