CTMH Mother's Day

Hello again, and Happy Friday! The weekend is just about here again! I have yet another Mother's Day card to share with you this morning that is going to Grandma from Sean. He likes making cards too, I even "gave" him my old Cricut Personal, but he is off having fun with friends and enjoying being outside, so....Lol! This card is 5x5. I used the Florentine pack from CTMH. The beautiful papers in the pack are double sided and coordinated, so it takes the guess work out of color matching.

I used a fun technique on the stamped vase with flowers on the card. I masked parts of the flowers to eliminate the stems, making them look like they are "in" the vase. I cut out the image after using a blender pen with some inks to add color to the vase, and popped the image with foam tape. Inks used: Sunrise, Olive and Desert sand, all from CTMH of course! The bow is from ribbon scraps in my stash.
