I have to admit I struggled a bit with this one until I decided to go with my gut reaction. When I initially saw this pic the first thing that came to mind for me was this was a shot of the bottoms of some finished dresses made by a French seamstress! I found a piece of patterned paper in the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two Sunshine pad that contained some elements of sewing - an old fashioned sewing machine and a faint image of lace - and went from there:
At first I was going to use a dress form image in the design and then I decided to not go that literal. Instead I stamped Hero Arts K5376 Hydrangea and colored the flowers only with copics. I overstamped Hero Arts K5344 La Letter twice with SU So Saffron ink. The butterflies from Hero Arts CL383 Antique Engravings were stamped, colored with copics and accented with Ranger stickles. Sentiment is from Hero Arts CL498 Celebrate Everyday. I finished the card off with a strip of measuring tape pp from the Crate Paper Farmhouse pad and some organdy ribbon, lace and a vintage-inspired button from my stash.
Other Materials Used: Stampin' Up pool party cs, Michael's black pearls, Ranger antique linen and walnut stain distress inks
And although my mom prefers simpler things she does adore all things yellow or gold so I plan to give her this card for Mother's Day:) I hope all the moms out there (including moms of furbabies!) have a wonderful Mother's Day full of love and laughter!
