Wonderful Mother




Hello Peeps, thanks for stopping by today! Can you beleive it is the last day of January already?

Today's card is a girly version of my Wonderful Friend Card.

I changed this one to be for Mother's Day. I started with a base of rose red, followed that up with some cameo coral and then some whisper white and finally some DS paper from the Raspberry Tart pack. I really love the colors in this card. The strip is also DS paper from the same pack with some whisper white scallops on each side.

The flowers are from the new set Petal Pizazz and the sentiment is from the SU set Wonderful Favorites. I used some white taffeta ribbon and a silver ribbon slide. The flower is up on dimensionals with a sticky pearl in the center. I also added three pearls in the upper right corner.



I want some opinions on this card please, what should I change or do different to improve it. I was thinking I might submit this one and need some help please.




What do you think?

Happy Stamping!

Vicki

I think this is gorgeous... I love the color palette and the layout. I'm only making a suggestion because you asked - The white ribbon seems off scale to me. Maybe try to narrow the red layer to be more in line with the narrow white ribbon. Of course, you could try a wider ribbon, too. Either way - or just like it is - gorgeous! Love that floral accent. :)

I really like the look of the color combo, and the pearls. Will you be using a different photo for the submission? For the submission, I would take one at more of an eye level of the card, and crop out more of the background (glare from the table).
