Sweet n Sassy Motherly Love...Tuesday Throwdown TT#97

Hello dear friends and welcome to another Tuesday Throwdown Challenge!! This week we are celebrating 'Motherly Love' using Sweet n Sassy stamps who are also our sponsor this week!

I was inspired by the sweet 'Morning Glory' digital stamp and decided to make a card celebrating everything my mum loves including the colours pink and green, guipure lace, satin ribbon, mini ric-rac, buttons and crystal gems!

I coloured the morning glories using shades of pink and those beautiful leaves using vibrant green copic markers and then cut the whole image out using my Spellbinders Standard Ovals Lge die. I then went back in and added three teeny tiny little clear gems to the centre of each pink flower. I edged the oval with some pink mini ric-rac, simply gluing and easing the ric-rac, following the curved edge as I went. I added some cute vintage white buttons to the top and bottom section of the oval label for a little extra embellishment. 


I stamped the 'Mum' sentiment onto a tiny labels 4 die cut shape which had been sponged with Antique Linen distress ink and attached it onto my pink satin ribbon bow using some natural button twine.  The button embellishment I made myself by glueing two cream buttons together and then attaching a hot pink adhesive pearl to the centre. Finally I added some pretty white leaf stick pins behind the satin bow as a finishing touch.


That's all from me for now...but if you fancy joining in our 'Motherly Love' challenge and make a card or project for Mother's Day, then you can find all the details and link up your project by clicking HERE.
