Best Mother Ever

Mother's Day is just around the corner and so it's time to get those cards for your mom or the mother figures in your life ready! Paper-Garden is having a fun Mother's Day blog hop and I'm playing along!

For my card I used a clear stamp from Power Poppy called Geraniums Take Two. I just love geraniums, they are one of my favorite flowers to have in my garden! I'm not a fan of the color pink but I do love it in my flowers so I made my geraniums a nice strawberry pink. Because I like darker colors I used Basis Blue card stock from the Paper-Garden for my card base, the frame around my oval image panel and for the sentiment ribbon. I like how the blue balances out the strawberry color, keeping the card feminine but not overly girly! This blue is such a lovely shade of navy, I really like it! The Paper-Garden very generously sent me quite a few shades of their card stock to try out and let me tell you, I'm loving the blues and greens! (I'll post more about their card stock when I get back from my trip to the Lower 48!)

To finish off the card I heat embossed the sentiment (from an older SU retired set) on the banner and popped it up with dimensionals. I added the gems on each side just to give it a little extra "oomphhh".

Head on over to Paper-Garden, check out all the entries and then I'd love it if you voted for my card! You can vote at the bottom of the page, you'll see my blog, Snowy Moose Creations, in the drop down menu!
