Mother's Day Card #3

Here's a bright and cheery looking Mother's Day card. I used Barely Banana and Certainly Celery and the two colors just seemed to warm up this card, didn't it?

I did stamp Summer Sun on the Barely Banana. Versa Mark and Barely Banana showed up too light on the card stock.

I was torn between adding just a knot or a bow. I went with the knot to keep the focus on the flower.

For the flower I used the direct to rubber technique. For those of you who are not familiar with that technique, it just means you color the ink on the rubber with a marker and when you're done you huff on it to add some moisture from your breath to moisten up the ink. It's a very nice technique. It allows you to use many colors on your image.

I added some holes to the upper right corner using the Mat Pack and I added a brad to the center of the flower.

This card was made entirely of Stampin' Up! products. To view more cards/items made entirely of Stampin' Up! products click here.
