This week the challenge is FOR MOM!!!

 The beautiful vase of flowers is Sweet Stamps Leigh's Flower Arrangement which is part of Jacqueline Hill's 2011 Botanical Collection.  On white cardstock I stamped the image with Distress Ink Pad Clear Embossing and embossed it with Pearl Fine Detail .  I created the background with a Color Box Stylus, Shades Dye Ink Sugan-N-Spice  and Pansy Purple.  The embossed area acts as a resists and stays pearly white!!  Two Cheery Lynn Dies were used Scalloped Square Reflections and Lace Corner Deco B.  The corners were also colored with Shades Sugan-N-Spice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen created the pearls on the corners.  The Scalloped Reflection Die has holes in it so I sewed Silky Thread  for a frame effect!!  The greeting is Happy Mother's Day stamped in d embossed it with Pearl Fine Detail .  I created the background with Shades Sugan-N-Spice  and Pansy Purple and cut apart.  Stardreams paper was used for the Scalloped Square. It is a 6" square.
