Another year older...
Are you having a wonderful weekend? I certainly hope you are! Happy Mother's Day to you!:-)
I just want to share with you a card I made for a challenge over at the The Shabby Tea Room! It's been awhile since I entered a card over at one of my favorite challenges. One of the fun things I like to do is incorporate texture on my card, so I couldn't pass up this challenge. I think it all went together well with the monochromatic color scheme and added embellishments for a masculine birthday card.
The challenge called for dry embossing and stitching. I did get carried away and before I knew it I covered up the dry embossing on the cream colored paper. I just kept adding different patterned papers. You can see just a tad of the embossing peeking out. There is stitching around the numbered paper and on the embossed paper, too. I distressed around the edges and time piece with ink. Burlap and trims were added for more texture. Buttons and brads were added for the final touch.
Whatever you do today to celebrate this special day, I hope it's a great one! It's a bittersweet day for me since recently my dear sweet Mother passed away only one month ago, but I hold on to precious memories close to my heart! Here is a photo of my Mother last year celebrating Mother's Day...
On a happier note, my sweet son is here to visit and got me a wonderful basket filled with Bath & Body Works
goodies!:-) Here is a photo of me and my sweet son...
