I'm delighted to let you know I was invited to be a "guest" designer on Watercooler Wednesday this week. You won't believe what an honour this was for me. I'm so over the wall inspired by this group of exceptionally talented paper crafters, it was a real thrill to join them.
This week Watercooler Wednesday is featuring a wonderful sketch challenge by the talented Libby Fens who just recently became a permanent member of the design team. Congrats Libby!
Here's Libby's sketch - WWC66:
Mother's Day is just around the corner so I decided to use this delightful sketch to design a card for my mom.
When she was younger, my mom was an avid gardener who couldn't wait for Spring so she could work in her garden. She planted a variety of fragrant and colourful plants including Pinks, Bachelor's Buttons, Forget-Me-Nots, Cosmos, and Sweet William. What joy she took in those flowers!
|Mom really enjoyed her flower garden and I can remember going to the store with her to buy her precious packages of seeds.|
Here's My Card:
April was a special month for Stampin' Up's Paper Pumpkin as they were celebrating not only their 3rd birthday but also their one millionth sale. To reward new Paper Pumpkin subscribers they included an extra exclusive photopolymer stamp set called "All About Everything" which I've featured in the two stamped panels on this card.
I always finish the inside of my cards and the matching envelopes with stamped or embossed images. Here's what the card looks like inside:
The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment is from the Lovely Little Wreath stamp set which was part of the April 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit. I really like the lettering and the small flowers on this sentiment.

Card Stock: Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral
