You're The Best, Mum

***This is my second post for the day.  For my Fusion post please scroll down or click here!***



The weekend turned out to be relatively productive in the card making department so I've got another one to share today.  This is for the Play Date Cafe's Colour Splash challenge.  I thought this colour looked a lot more purpley in real life but it's looking pretty red here.  Ah well, it's joining the challenge anyway!  Can't seem to make enough Mother's Day cards at the moment so I'm using every opportunity to crank them out.  Have a lovely evening and I'll be back tomorrow with CASology!  




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Raspberry Ripple, Basic Black)  Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Ikat from Mar '3 KOM - You Are Simple The Best) Unity, (Sentiment from Scootin' By) Sweet Stamp Shop
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Raspberry Ripple) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Die-namics Butterflies) Memory Box
Punch:  (Corner Rounder) Marvy Uchida
Stickers:  Scenic Route

Great bold design Jen, I haven't yet worked out whether or not I like ikat, but it looks just fab how you have used it here.

Exactly what Therese said! Personally I'm stumped at how to use ikat, but YOU have rocked it! Love the colours, and the big font for Mum!

This is such a gorgeous card! I love the deep, rich red you chose for the Ikat pattern and butterfly...just beautiful!

LOVE the Ikat pattern. Great Mom's day card!

Jenny said...

I'm another one to echo Therese!!
The jury is still out on how I'd use ikat but love how you've underlined the sentiment on you card with it.
It's good to see a non flowery Mother's Day card once in a while :0)

Perfect way to use that stamp! What a great, graphic card. The butterfly tops everything off so well. :)

Good to know people are still in love with their ma's in Bermuda!

A two-fer day?! The mojo must be on overdrive. Love this color combo (so classy) and the font of the sentiment - but we don't say "Mum" here in CA.
