Mother's Day Card with Freshly Made Sketch #287

The gorgeous paper in the Close to My Heart National Scrapbooking Month "Live Beautifully" special offer is the focal point of my card.  The purple rose was outlined with the Gold Shimmer Brush and the other flowers were enhanced with the Clear Shimmer Brush (the clear shimmer does not photograph well!)  The greeting is from a retired stamp set called Say it All.


This card came together very quickly following this fabulous Freshly Made Sketch:

  1. Hi Marie, what a beautiful card! I can see why you've chosen to use that stunning Designer Series paper as your focal point. Adding the subtle clear shimmer to your roses and then outlining the primary rose with the Gold Shimmer was a brilliant move. You've combined the sketch and our Mom theme beautifully as well. Thanks so much for joining in for our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
