Mother's Day Card

Hello everyone, I can say that I really ready for the spring weather to come, and that I am getting spring fever already! To get into a spring mood, I started to make holiday cards for spring, and decided to start out by making a mother's day card.

This Mother's Day card that I made that I will give to my mom this year. I think it's really cute, as I really love that little bird. I used KI Memories and Pink Paislee pattern papers, and then a Snag 'em Stamp from Imaginisce, and some older supplies which were the Doodlebug flowers and the "Happy Mother's Day" sticker from Me and My Big Ideas. I created the stamped image by first stamping with StazOn Blazing Red ink, and then I colored the bird with Shimmerz Paints in Periwinkle and Royal Red, finally, I made the bird stand out with foam squares, to give him a little dimension . The Shimmerz paints really added to the little happy bird and to the card! This is something that I am looking forward to giving to my mother this year!

Here is a close up of the little bird. See how nicely he shimmerz? I just love it!:
Well, have a great day, and here is to Spring coming soon!!!
