Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is here and I just want to say to all the incredible women I know and those I don't (for I know you're out there), take a bow and enjoy your special day!

Today I want to share the special card I made for my mom and a picture taken earlier this week at her home's Mother's Day Tea Party.  My mom who turned 96 this year is still going strong even though she faces lifes trials and health frailities every day.  She always looks forward to celebrating Mother's Day and having her family and loved ones shower her with attention. 
Mom won a ball cap at her Mother's Day tea this week and it was such a wonderful prize for her.  She absolutely loves it and wants to wear it everywhere.  Who knew something as simple as a ball cap could give such pleasure. 

Here's My Mother's Day Card:

This is an Eclipse card made with the beautiful Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Paper from Stampin' Ups! Sale-A-Bration.  I've used Pool Party card stock for the card base and added a layer of Copper Foil for the layer.  The letters were cut from the layer before adhering the DSP.

The inside of the card  features a flower cut from the Springtime Foils DSP and coloured with Stampin' Blends markers.   
My mom loves yellow roses so the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight blends worked perfectly.

The background on the Spring Time Foils panel was coloured with light and dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends.  It didn't blend perfectly but the beauty of that is that the finished panel looks like it was watercolored.  The leaves were coloured with light and dard Old Olive Blends. 
I embossed this very meaingful saying from the Rose Wonder stamp set in Copper Embossing Powder.

I love the Alpha Letters cut from the Copper Foil.  They are big and bold.  I positioned the letters on the floral panel and cut them out.  These letters were set aside and used for another card.   Because my mom is blind she was able to feel each of the letters on the card which was important.  She could also feel the rose embossed flowers on the card panel.  When I told her they were yellow roses she smiled and said she could see them in her mind. 

Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoyed this card.
Happy Stamping!
