{IBS} To My Wonderful Mom!

Good morning and hello!!
I so excited to share my card with you today!!  Don't you just love it when you have an idea or thought for a card and it gets executed exactly as you imagined it??  Well that exactly what happened with my card today. 
Starting with my background, I wanted a quilted look, so I used three different patterned papers from the Spring Lilacs Paper Pad.  I just altered them, until I reached the very top and trimmed off any excess from around the edges.  To complete the look, I embossed the entire sheet, with a very beautiful and semi-floral embossing folder. 
I decorated the oval frame, using some beautiful blooms and a double bow.  
The sentiment is from Mother's Day Bouquet stamp set.  I also used the frame from Vintage Pieces in the background, behind the sentiment. 
Here is a closer look at the detailed embossing and the stamping inside the oval frame.
Hope you've enjoyed viewing my detailed Mother's Day card, made especially for someone special.

  1. Hi Calypso,

Please email me, you were such a sweetheart to link up and I have a little present for you- some digital Easter stamps.
