Y is for Yo Mama!

Challenge #7, "Y is for Yo Mama," is ready to be played at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!  Mother's Day is coming up, so if you need to do a card, you can enter it into our challenge.  You could make your mother the lovely and sentimental card and enter our challenge.  Then you could make a card for your mother (or mother-in-law) that shows your true feelings and you could enter our challenge.  We are excepting sweet or snarky cards.

I made a sweet card.  I pulled out my secret weapon, Graphic 45, and used papers from the Secret Garden line.  

All the layers were slightly distressed.  On the bird and pattered paper I used Old Paper Distress Ink.  The plain card stock was given the dual treatment of Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and Peach Bellini Glimmer Glam.  

I embossed the front of the card with a translucent embossing powder. On the inside of the card I used the same stamp, so I will spare you all that view.  ;)

I embellished the card with metals, flowers, fibers and a drop "gem."

Hope you like it Mom!

Please visit my snarky sisters' blogs to see what they have come up with for Mother's Day.

Shari, our current Guest Designer
Jessi, who made both kinds of cards!
Karen, also made both cards.

Beautiful card, Lee! When I use Graphic 45 papers, I let them do all the work, but you added so much more to the already pretty paper! Wow. ♥
