Elegant Mother's Day

Today I made a card for my daughter's Godmother to send to her for Mother's Day. I needed something quick and easy and didn't have a lot of layers and stuff. So, I scanned the SU! catalog for some ideas and found Soft Sky and Choc. Chip and thought it looked beautiful! I wanted to use Baroque Motifs for this, I just LOVE this swirly designed stamp! I think I use this ALL THE TIME! I saw on Sharon Johnson's blog where she stamped a swirly design from Flourishes w/ Versamark and then used a stipple brush and applied Pearlex Powder. Well, I have not used my Pearlex powders in a long time, so I thought this was a perfect excuse to start! I made a couple cards a few weeks ago using this and thought I would use that same technique for this card! I wanted to do a nice little box to stamp Happy Mother's Day inside for the middle of the card, but my Happy Mother's Day stamp from All Year Cheer is LARGE so I started playing around w/ my new oval Nestibilities and do a layer to finish the look. I loved how it turned out! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!!!
