Heart of Roses for Mother's Day

Happy Friday, everyone!  I'm wrapping up the week with a clean-and-simple, one layer Mother's Day card.


I used only two stamps:  a sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s Well-Scripted, and a sweet rose from DeNami Design's Solid Rose Accents.  I practiced the heart shape first on scrap paper, then crossed my fingers and hoped it would turn out okay on the card.  It did - mostly - but that's where a strategically-placed bow comes into play.  ;-)

The three pink inks I used did not photograph quite as they look in real life.  There's a much warmer, rosier feel than shows in the picture.

I've got more Mom cards to share next week, and in the meantime, have a wonderful weekend!



Stamps: Solid Rose Accents - DeNami; Well-Scripted - SU Paper: white - PTI Ink: Pixie Pink, Pretty In Pink, Pink Passion - SU; Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Fibers: Pretty In Pink grosgrain ribbon - SU Accessories & Tools: corner rounder punch - Fiskars
