Potted Plants for Mother's Day

Welcome!  I've got a simple design for Mother's Day, but with lots of extra details.


I used an image from an older Stampin' Up! set, Blooming With Love.  This card is for my MIL, and she does love her plants!  I used mostly Copic markers, but touched up some leaves with the skinny end of a Garden Green SU marker.  The image is matted with Wild Wasabi, which coordinates well with the colors of the card.  A border of punched flowers and pearls made their way on here, because it looked too plain without them.


The celery card base was embossed differently than the rose strip of cardstock, for extra dimension and interest.  And the little Papertrey Ink tag was selectively stamped with part of a sentiment from Verve's Small Phrases.  The entire stamp says 'you are loved'.

Also, I added a snippet of sheer/satin striped ribbon with a simple knot, but then rethought it.  It did not look right without a bow, but my snippet was too short for that.  Used a piece of seam binding instead and glued it on.  I think it looks okay this way, don't you?


Thanks so much for checking out my plants today!  See you soon with more Mom's Day cards.  :-D

Your bow solution worked out perfectly! Your coloring looks great, too. I love the pretty palette you used on this, and that little "loved" tag is so sweet!
