LPC -VV#4 - You're the Best Mom

Lot's of flowers on my blog lately, huh?  I guess with so many spring blooms happening here, I'm inspired!  The Lily Pad Cards blog is hosting the Virginia's View challenge again which is gorgeous Poppies! (pictured under my card) - so I HAD to create a card for this challenge!!


I heat embossed the image on watercolor paper with clear powder.  Then I used a bunch of Distress Inks to color in the image.  I used a Studio G sentiment popped up on layer that I sewed on! Yes...I sewed!!!  :)    Then I added a few dew drops and it needed a little more at the bottom so I made little dots with my Enamel Accents.

You've got until May 3rd to play along - so it's plenty of time to find inspiration from this photo!

Have a great day!!!

Thanks for your visit!
