Happy Mother's Day

Happy Thursday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Welcome to Just A Scrappin's weekly challenge. This week we are celebrating MOMs. With Mother's Day just a few short days away, it is time to head into the craft room and create something special for mom. We are hoping to help by providing creative inspiration (use any colors you like for your card, layout or project).

This week I created a card showcasing a beautiful bouquet of flowers (and the best kind too, a bouquet that last longer than one week).  I wanted to make the flower arrangement the focal point of the card so I maintained a clean background with a complementing pattern paper for the card base. I cannot express enough how difficult that was for me. I almost pulled out my watercolor palette to add a few splatters. I used Tim Holtz distress ink pad (peeled paint) to create the watercolor effect on the flower stems. Finally, I added a few brads, twine and a sentiment banner and the card was complete.

I hope I have inspired you to create something special for your mom. Please stop by the Just A Scrappin' blog for more inspiration from the design team.

Thank you for stopping by,
