I made this card to celebrate Mother's Day for all my wonderful Blog readers but it didn't post in time.  The wishes are still sincere and I hope all of you had a wonderful day.  It doesn't matter if you are a mother or have a mothering heart, this is all about you!


Today I am using 2 products that I truly love.  The Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper & the World of Dreams Stamp Set.  The paper is vibrant and so rich with the jungle like mix of colors.  Because it would be overwhelming to use it for an entire background piece, I split the panels with a section of Whisper White Cardstock that is edged with slivers of Daffodil delight Cardstock. 


On the Whisper White panel, I stamped an image from the World of Dreams  using Archival Black Ink.  I wanted a dramatic contrast to the dsp.  In addition, some texture was added by stamping an image from Gorgeous Grunge with stamped off Daffodil Delight Ink.


The final touch was the addition of an Expressions Natural Element which serves to unite the 3 panels and draw the eye to the main image.

I would appreciate your help in deciding what type of cards you would like to see this week.  Please select a choice from below and tell me your preference in a comment.  I will do my best to honor your selection.

a) Cards using retiring stamps
