HIMCR #147 - "Mother's Day"

If you are here for Get Inky!'s Spring/Easter Blog Hop, click HERE.

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!

It's the 4th Saturday of the month and do you know what that means?

It not only means it is time for another challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room, but it is a "freestyle" challenge.  And this week's theme is "Mother's Day" . . . this can be a card, a tag for a gift, an altered item for a gift, a scrapbook page about Mother or just anything that says "Mother" to you or for Mother.  So get out your scissors, glue . . . and scraps and let's get crafty!

This week our sponsor is Pickled Potpourri:

And the giveaway is a $7 gift certificate!

For this week's challenge, Pickled Potpourri gave us 4 different digi images to chose from and I chose to use the "Tulips" because not only do they remind me of "Mother" but they also remind me of Spring.  Here's how my card turned out:

For this card, I used paper from the "Valentine's" paper package from The Paper Temptress . . . it had so many different reds, pinks, creams, golds, etc. that it was hard to chose which ones to use. But chose, I did. :)  Oh, and right now all variety paper packages are 25% off at The Paper Temptress.

Using my Sprllbinders "Romantic Retangles (#S5-090) and the Rose Quartz Mica/Metallic, I created the base of my card. The next layer is Gold Mica/Metallic Text (which means it is a lighter weight version of the Mica/Metallic paper) and the creamy paper at top is Opal Metallic. And the paper at the bottom are scraps from "Summer Stories" 6x6 paper pad by Teresa Collins.  I used pink rhinestones from the Lost 'n Found collection by MME at each corner of the base of the card, at the top right of the front and under the word's "Happy Mother's Day" (which I added at the bottom of the tulip digi before I printed it.

I just love how soft all the colors look . . . and how shimmery the paper is.  Here's a close-up to show you the shimmer:

Remember, you have one (1) week to get your "Mother's Day" projects in to be eligible for the prize from Pickled Potpourri.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with . . . and I'm sure your Moms can't either. :)

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
