Mother's Day Card #5

Hi crafty friends!
Now you are probably wondering why I have 
made so many Mother's Day cards.
Earlier this year I decided that I wanted to make
a point of sending out more cards to my family,
so that's what I've been trying to do for 
holidays.  I'm lucky enough to still have my
Mom, she is 92 yrs old and going strong.
But I also have a few sisters in law that I'll be
sending them too.
Just because they are not MY mother
doesn't mean they don't deserve a card, right?
Today I have card #5 in my series.
This poppy stamp is one of my favorites.
I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black Ink
onto water color paper.
I colored it with 
and fussy cut it.
The black background is from a piece I had
in my stash.  I made this using Perfect Pearls
and black card stock.
It's hard to capture the shimmer in a photograph, 
but in real life it's just beautiful.
The larger background was also in my stash,
it was made using
I simply wrapped it around a piece of white
card stock to give it stability,
then adhered it to the card base.
I love having these handmade background
pieces in my stash to choose from.
I used some craft foam on the back of the 
black piece to give a little dimension.
The sentiment is from 
from QKR Stampede.

I hope you are enjoying these cards,
I sure did enjoy making them.
Come again soon for card #6 and the
last in the Mother's Day Card Series.
See you soon!
