Happy Mother's Day x 2

Good morning!! Today's card is doing double duty.  It's a Card Pattern sketch and a Curtain Call colour scheme.  I couldn't decide whether to use cream or kraft for the main image panel so I made two cards!!  I'm using Awash with Flowers again as I loved using it for my Viva La Verve card this weekend.  I love filling in the spaces between the flowers with the little leaf stamp...adorable!!  After stamping the first card, I realized that the colour call was for white, not cream!!! ACK!!! So I used white satin ribbon to make up for it!!! I actually like mixing white and cream, it's like mixing brown and black or gold and silver...I say go for it!!! LOL
Could anything be yummier than stamping on kraft?  I must love it because it's the colour of lattes!! LOL  Well, that's it...it's a no staff meeting Monday so I'll be home at a reasonable hour tonight :D  Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by :)


What's in them?
Stamps: SU awash with flowers, messages for mom
Ink: SU kiwi kiss, basic black, PTI raspberry fizz, sweet blush
Paper: SU melon mambo; PTI sweet blush, cream, kraft, spring moss
Accessories: fiskars border punch, nesties labels 4; Michaels ribbon, PTI ribbon, pearls, stitching; SU embossing folder

Such beautiful cards, I love the 2step stamping. My favorite is the first though, perhaps because of the delicate pearls. Fab work!

Two for the price of one blog visit - what a bargain! I, too, love kraft, but I don't seem to use it nearly as much as I should - such versatility! Beautiful work on the challenges, Maureen!

Oooh, I am with you on the kraft. Always my first choice but the white is fresh. Both cards are great.
