Because of You

I thought this would make a nice Mother's Day card - I like the simple message but I held back from stamping the traditional Happy Mother's Day on the inside because it may have other uses.


I saw a blog post recently of a beautiful card of a dress form with sheer polka dot ribbon ... so it gave me the idea to try this with the satin ribbon and I used the MFT dress form die.  The sentiment (inside & out) are from the same Verve set.  All dies are from Spellbinder & MFT and the white scallop edge is a Martha Stewart punch.  Of course I had to get my flourishes in there.........  ;)


Thanks for stopping by for a peek!!  'Till next time.......

Oh my goodness, Carla, your card is jaw dropping beautiful. I was swept away the moment I laid eyes on it with it's fabulous flourishes. Love the distressed wood DP too.

Hi Carla!! I had to jump over here this a.m. even though I am at work, because your comment on my blog...where you said 'flippin', LOL you sound & remind me of Pauline. I can hear her saying that...haha This card with the embellishemnts and that dressform with the ribbon...oh la la. I am sitting here wondering how I could work this onto one of my cards...I am getting ideas and I just started the work day! What's a girl to do?? The wood papers are making me very happy these days...in so many different paper pads and it looks amazing here on the inside. Off to look some more!
