Thinking of Mom - PPA195

Today's card was inspired by the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. It's such a cheery color combination to remind us that spring is coming! For many of you, such a relief after this long winter!

I've been making cards for Operation Write Home and they need special occasion cards well ahead of time so this sentiment and the Petite Petals stamp were already on my table! 

I ran some Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot along with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder and then layered it on top of Rose Red Core'dinations Cardstock.

The sentiment is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set and then die cut using a die from the Apothecary Accents Framelits Die set. I die cut another one in Rose Red, cut it right down the middle (top to bottom) and then layered that underneath the sentiment, offset just a bit.

The lovely blossoms are stamped in So Saffron using the Petite Petals stamp set and then punched out with the Petite Petals Punch and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

The leaves are die cut using the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die and Wild Wasabi Core'dinations Cardstock. I made two die cuts, turning the cardstock over so that I could get the texture on the leaves going both directions.

Pearl Basic Jewels are the perfect finishing touch!

How about you? Are you ready for some spring weather?

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
