TO MY MOM!!!!!

Oh!!! All these awesome challenges are really challenging me to the core...... I wanna attempt each one of them in ONE project, but in vain..... I faced this difficulty with the color themes but failed...hence had to drop one of them.... But would surely attempt it in my next...... :-)

Here is the card..... It was that lovely sentiment of Mothers Day!!!!! I wanted to make one for my mom, too... But somehow nothing seemed convincing, even after it was attempted & done..... Still I feel something is missing or like it is not apt... or this was not what I wanted to make..... I don't understand what's wrong & where..... But still I am here posting it...... I would try another soon...... Very Soon!!!!!! So just WAIT & WATCH!!!! for my next........

To Mom

I'm sincerely thankful to all the Challenging Ideas, put forth by......

To Mom

Kindly accept my heartfelt thanks....ALL!!!!!

I used a dark green card stock for my base.... On which I embossed  flowers for the first time - On the Card..... My hands ached as it takes, all the strength one has, to keep it fixed.... By the time my hubby returned from the work.... I was waiting for him sobbing as I had a very bad catch in my wrist because of my wrestling...... He just massaged my wrist a bit hard...... & Voila! It took the whole day for the veins to relax..... ;-)

To Mom

I used the dark green card stock & a lighter shades of the same color for the overlaps.......

I stamped the Hobby Ideas flower on the card & a creeper on the other, which I later filled & covered with few punches & glitters.......

I used a piece of the green ribbon to hold the button & the embossed cut-out, sentiment, together..... which I stuck with the help of a dimensional...... I even tampered with the ends of the ribbon so that it would throw few strands out..... ;-)

And the sentiments are .... Of course, Hand Written...... :-)

To Mom

So that is it for now..... To My MOM!!!!! Only Mine!!!!!!

I don't see anything wrong with this card. They indeed look very impressive. If you aren't satisfied you should try going with whatever ur mom loves and whether she likes flowers or candies or gift-box theme and such..
