Mother's Day Wishes





We started our Easter celebration early this morning and sent our son back to college before the
traffic and weather got too bad, so I was ready for a little stamping time.  It's fun to "shop" for inspiration photos and sketches, and I found a great pair.

To achieve the edge detail in the Freshly Made Sketch, I used the Little Inker Stitched Diagonal Die.  A boldly striped paper  from  Bo Bunny  and some pink blossoms stamped and cut with Verve's Joyful Blooms hint at the graphic photo with its soft pinkish reflections.  The glittery leaves were cut from a Verve die and give a nod to the shimmering rain in the photo.

Happy stamping,
Christine
