3CT-Mother's Day


Welcome to another addition of Three Clover Thursday challenge. This week we were given the challenge of creating a card for:
Mothers/Women and to use lace or ribbon. I started out by finding a sketch to use and chose the newest Cupcake Sketch over on Taylor's blog to use. I find it so much easier to work on a card if I have an idea of how I want it to go together before I start.
Next up I chose my DP (My Minds Eye - Bloom and Grow collection). These colors are so bright and cheerful.
It's hard to see in the scan but I added Crystal Effects to the little circles around the flowers to look like dew drops falling on them. There is also shimmer to the lighter flowers and some glitter in the center of the largest flower.
Since Blogger wasn't cooperating with me last night while I was trying to upload I am not going to leave a lot of detail here this morning as I want to get this posted. If you need more information about this card feel free to email me.
Don't forget to check out the other Blog Challenge Design Teams blogs and check out their creations.
Have a great day. Ida
