PPC #59 - Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend? For us Canadians, it's a long weekend and a lot of people are out for the first camping session of the year. With all the out-of-control forest fires happening in Alberta right now, there is a province-wide fire ban, so not many fires will happen while camping but fun can still be had! We got some glorious rain last night and supposed to continue today - so I'm celebrating that my garden is in and I can sit and craft all day! Yay!

Are you ready for a color challenge to get your MOJO flowin' again? Megan over at Picture Perfect Creations has issued a gorgeous my opinion anyways! :) This card is another Mother's Day card that I did up last month when I was working ahead on all my design team work....I decided to emboss the stamped image to give it that extra special touch...

Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Marina Mist, Old Olive DSP; Ink: Early Espresso; Accessories: markers, perfect dots and lattice EF, scallop punch, oval scallop punch, olive ribbon, scallop trim border punch, pearls, dimensionals

Please check out the rest of the PPC Design Team to see more yummy creations using this color combination...their links are on the right. Take care and see you shortly for another SPCC color challenge....
