a card for Mom...

Well, I'm getting excited! Next week is the Sneak Peek Week for Ethereal Forest Designs and the newly formed design team is hard at work on creating beautiful cards for your inspiration! EFD will be releasing 26 new digistamps (both images and sentiments) on March 1st at the unveiling of their new online store and blog! Become a "follower" on their blog so you can see the cutest images ever! We have a Blog Hop and Monthly Challenge planned as well as all the wonderful creations from the "Ethereal Girls". Stay tuned for more!

My card this week fits the following Challenges: Our Creative Corner Weekly Sketch Challenge, The Pink Elephant, Quixotic Challenges, Pile It On, and Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.


This card uses the new Iron Gate Corner punch by Martha Stewart as the focal point! I punched the corners of a 2 x 2 inch ivory cardstock square, then distressed the edges and stamped my initials for MOM (Inkadinkado) using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I mounted my pieces to designer paper by Die Cuts with a View called "At Home", then adhered them to matching ivory cardstock. My background paper is also from the same paper stack, and I glued it to an ivory panel, then to a blue card. I finished the card off with Prima Roses and Flowers, a brown organza/satin bow and pretty rhinestone swirls! Card size 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches
