For Momma


     Another one of my kitchen sink cards, but it was for my momma so that's okay.  ☺  I made this card back at the beginning of the month for my mom's birthday with this weeks Mo's Digital Pencil challenge in mind.
     Our lovely Iulia wants to see projects "for the women".  I used Eileen who is perfect for my mom since she is a gardener.  I did a lot of layering,distressing, and inking on this one.  The corner die was cut several times and layered for thickness.  The butterflies were embossed and inked.  Each one of the little flowers was embossed on a mouse pad for dimension and carefully applied one by one with those tiny leaves.
    Hope you like the card and can play along with us this week at Mo's for your chance at a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's store.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  11. Wonderful card, Tracy; one can see lots of work went into that layering and distressing but with the gardening theme and a bit of "old times" look everything intermingles beautifully. Happy Belated Birthday to your Momma, she's so lucky to have such a talented cardmaker as daughter:)

  21. Hello dear Tracy,

    I just love your card.It looks so sweet and gentle to me.
    The layout the papers,and that sweet women with her plant.
    Oh boy i wish i could stand like that.
    I have totally no green vingers in me.
    And the such clever idea to do the flowers like that on the green ...euh..sorry don't know the english word for it,it's late here in the Netherlands.
    But it's gorgeous!

    Have a great day!
