For Mothers


Our challenge this week over at House Mouse & Friends is to make a card that you could give to a mother. We have a lot of new mothers in our church, and I wanted to make this for a mother of a new boy. I liked my HM card HERE with all the white space, and decided to do another. If you visit frequently, you know that white space is not the *norm* for me! But I certainly do like the look!

I scored three lines on the top and bottom with my Scor-Pal, and then just used one layer of designer paper. I watercolored my bunny with Creamy Caramel and Pink Pirouette, and then painted the bottle with Bordering Blue and Basic Gray, and added Crystal Effects when it was dry. The sentiment is stamped in Certainly Celery and is by Stampin' Up!

If you would like to play along, check out the post HERE. We would love to see your *motherly* creations!
