Elements of Style in Purple


Happy Mother's Day!
 
A few weeks ago I created this Mother's Day card for a co-worker to give to him mom.
 
 
I stacked the Spellbinder Opulent Ovals in various shades of purple (her favorite color).
 
 
The roses were stamped in StazOn Stone Gray and colored with a blender pen in Pretty in Pink and Perfect Plum.  I added some Cotton Candy Stickles to each flower.  Mom was stamped in Adirondack Purple Twilight and embossed with clear embossing powder.
 
 
The inside sentiment was also stamped in Adirondack Purple Twilight and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Lots of white space so he could write a special note to her.  His mother's name is also Donna  :-)
 
To all mothers near and far wishing you a fantastic day!

Hi Donna - Hope you having a lovely Mother's Day. The card you made is beautiful - some of my favourite colour combinations and I love the old fashioned roses you chose to put in the middle.
