Ain't no Other Like my Mother Challenge

The new challenge over at Cardz TV is to make a project for Mother's Day. Here is what I came up with.


I started with a white card stock base, but and scored to make a 4 1/4"  X 5 1/2" card. I added a blue mat cut at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8". My patterned paper is cut at 4" X 5 1/4". I also took a piece of the blue paper and cut it at 1" X 4" and ran it through my eBosser and embossed it with a Cuttlebug border embossing folder.

My bird house is a Marianne die that I cut from white card stock. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the flowers and the house. I then stamped the butterfly on it and colored it with some liquid pearls using a fine paint brush. My little wooden birds are from Recollections and are colored with Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry. I added a small blue ribbon bow to the top of my bird house. I stamped my sentiment from the Happy Day's stamp set with some Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I thank you for visiting today and hope you will join us in the challenge over at Cardz TV.
