Mother's Day Rose

     I spent this morning getting my first Mother's Day card made and it's a fun combination of recycled, re-colored, and both die and hand cutting.  A couple of months ago, a friend gave me a stack of retro cards which I've been recycling into vintage cards.  This is another one of those.


     The rose and buds were originally white with gray shadings and I wanted them to be pink so I colored them with my ProMarkers and a touch of gel pen.  I fussy cut the image, layered it onto pink CS, and fussy cut it again.  

     I die cut the doily with a Spellbinders die, offset the image, and added that to background dp from SU.  I put the sentiment onto another piece of the dp I had used for the doily, and die cut it.  I trimmed it by hand to fit into the corner.  The final touch was the pink bow and the glitter on the doily.

     Challenges:
As You Like It (Diagonal - I love fancy for girlie cards and purple/pink are fav colors)
Aud Sentiments (1st column)

     That's all I have for today.  Be sure to check back tomorrow when a new challenge starts at Tuesday Throwdown.  You'll love it.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
