For Mother's Day

Today I want to share a design I made using Flourishes' In and Out You set, available at i {heart} papers here. I love the versatility of this set. I made this for my mom for Mother's Day.

I used Poptone's Sweet Tooth CS for my base, and then added a layer of Colorbok's Textured White. I made a pocket with the Sweet Tooth and added three different trims to offer a color contrast. I was inspired by the SCS Inspiration Challenge this week. I chose this lovely fun tri-color prom dress for my inspiration. I like the ombre look and used a tri-color ribbon to carry that theme into my card.
My ink is Memento's London Fog and I chose some Snow White KaiserCraft Pearls for embellishment. My flower is by Prima. I used a Rolodex punch for the top and ran my Scor-Bug below the punched edge. All of the links will take you to the supplies I used from i {heart} papers!

The trims are all from Really Reasonable Ribbon. In addition to the SCS Challenge, this is also for RRR's Mother's Day Challenge here.
I love how this turned out and think my mom will too~!

This card, also using a Flourishes sentiment, won at Twisted Tuesdays~!
