Craft Rocket Challenge #9 ~ Mother's Day

Hello Blogging Buddies,

Here is my card for this challenge:


Close To My Heart Peacock stamp
White card stock
Black card stock
Aqua card stock
Versa mark
White embossing powder
Peacock Feathers distress ink
Cracked Pistachio distress ink
Heart charm

For this 5 by 7 inch card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  Then I took a piece of black paper and embossed it with my Darice striped background embossing folder and added that to the base.  Next I took some neenah paper and stamped the peacock with Versa mark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Next I took some Peacock Feathers distress ink and some Cracked Pistachio distress ink and rubbed them on the paper, cut down the paper and mounted that on some aqua card stock and then again on white card and then I attached that to the base of the card.  I stamped the sentiment on white paper with Peacock Feathers distress ink and cut that out with a shaped die and popped it up on the card.  Lastly I took the DL.ART Mermaids Tale Second Edition Blue Hue rbbon and made a bow and tied the heart charm onto the bow and attached that to the card.  I really love the colors in this ribbon.

Now it is your turn to create something for the Craft Rocket Challenge #9 with a Mother's Day theme.  I can't wait to see what you create!

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful today!

Thanks for stopping by!
