Oh...and she never gives out, and she never gives in...

Ok, I have searched through my blog and I think I forgot to show you this card from the My Favorite Things release party last week. Bad Shannan! It was made with the new Happy Mother's Day set, and was probably my very favorite of all of the MFTeasers I did this go round.

I know, not the most conventional colors for a Mother's Day card. It started with coloring the image. I picked out the color for the dress because it looks fabulous on my mom. Then I found this polka dot paper that matched, so I just went with it. What do you think, too bright?

Here's a photo of the card with the belly band off. To create the "background" I stamped the sentiment from the Mother's Day set in Tea Stain Ranger Distress ink, then sponged the edges to soften them a bit.

The flower is from the Can Ya Dig It set, and I colored in the petals and center with my White Glaze Pen. I like how it filled in those dreaded spaces. *wink*

I hope you guys are having a great week. Stay tuned tomorrow for some Verve!

OMW, this is fantabulous, Shannan! I adore the fact that you colored the dress according to what looks great on your mom. I think the colors are perfect - and the big polka dot paper is fabulous.

I guess I just assumed it all opened in the middle, with the centerpiece going to one side or the other. But a belly band is so much better!
