Mother's Day = Hydrangea


In our house when I was growing up, my grandmother always brought my mother a beautiful purple or pink hydrangea every Mother's Day . For that reason the two have forever been inseparable in my mind. I therefore have created this card for my mother  for Mother's Day in memory of my beloved grandmother.

Stamps: 3 Step Hydrangea, Multi Step Lilacs (flower stem), Whole Family (sentiment), Friends of the Moon (texture on amethyst cardfront) all by Kitchen Sink Stamps
Papers: Pure Luxury White by Gina K Designs, Almost Amethyst and Elegant Eggplant by Stampin' Up
Inks: Blossom - Layer 4-Memento Grape Jelly, Layer 3-Memento Lulu Lavender, Layer 2-Memento Sweet Plum stamped off once, Layer 1-SU Almost Amethyst; Leaves and Stem - Layer 1-Memento Bamboo Leaves, Layer 2-Memento Cottage Ivy stamped off once, Layer 3-Memento Cottage Ivy; Sentiment - Memento Grape Jelly on top of Versamark for embossing
Tools: Nestabilities Label 4, Sponge, Bow Easy
Embellishment: Organdy Ribbon, Rhinestones, Clear Embossing Powder
