A Mother

Good morning dear friends.  Hope you are all surviving the snow. I keep telling myself it is winter - expect the cold!!!  Doesn't mean I have to like it though!!

My Card

Pearlescent card - from stash
Spellbinders Labels 4
Memory Box Tessatina Border
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Offray Ribbon
Pearls from stash
Sentiment- Quietfire Designs.

I made a centre step card from a piece of yellow pearlescent cardstock 11" x 5.5" I really love these centre step cards and they are so easy to make.  I actually checked out the step card die because you also get dies for matting and layering but it was so small I decided not to bother. 

This card is for my nephew to give to his mum.  Not sure whether it is for Mother's Day, or "just because".  I really love this sentiment stamp from Quietfire Designs; in fact I think I  love all their sentiment stamps. I have quite a few so I need to use them more often.

Take care!
