Roses on Paper DT Challenge - Folder Card for Mother's Day!
It's time for another challenge over at Roses on Paper's Design Team Blog and our wonderfully talented Anki has challenged us to create a folder card with a Mother's Day theme. I put my own twist on a folder card. My card holds a gift card in the center and you had to fold it in two places so I'm pretty sure it qualifies! Make sure you stop over today to take a look at the wonderful creations and cards designed by my outstanding designing sisters!
I have the best mother in the world. She's caring, kind, dependable and is one of the best christian women I know. I can always count of Mom and I'd be so lost without her. She's a wonderful gardener and can make anything grow. She's had every kind of flower in her garden from time to time and I remember daisies being out around her vegetable garden. This sweeties so reminds me of mom. And she loves coffee so the gift card inside the card is perfect for her!
My sweet "Picnics of Daisies" is from Sarah Kay and you can get them from Summer at Roses on Paper! She's fabulous to order from and has very quick shipping. You can see the instructions for the gift card holder here. (I found this link on Suzanne's Dean's blog and have wanted to try it forever. Perfect time, I think!) I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS and the background paper is some gorgeous Paper from K&Company called Wild Raspberries. Love, love it and it's perfect for her! I put dew drops in the corners and on the Prima Flowers. I highlighted the flowers with some stickles and used some distressed stickles on the bows in her braids. I cut her out with my nestabilities and the sentiment inside is a rub-on from Joann's. I love how she turned out!
