Pink Wild Roses for Mom

     Today we want you to take on our optional theme at QKR Stampede and make something Feminine or Specially for Mom.  Of course, you're more than welcome to just do our usual "Anything Goes" theme but Mother's Day is right around the corner so ...

    You'll usually find me doing something with one of QKR's fun images, most often featuring a cute or crazy animal but for Mother's Day, flowers seem to be appropriate.  It also gives me a chance to show off one of the gorgeous flower images they carry.  This one is called "Flowers" but it showcases wild roses and they were my mom's favorites.

     I used ProMarkers to color the roses and leaves, and a chalk marker to add the shadow behind it.  I cut the image with a plain square die from QuicKutz, then used a Fiskars punch to round the corners.  I used that same punch to round the corners of the card.

     I wanted a very CAS design so all I did was tie a tiny bow with the last scrap I had of that sparkly ribbon, then I printed, hand cut, and matted the sentiment and that was it.
