Happy Mother's Day Card

If you haven't yet, please take a second to enter my 400 follower giveaway!

Tracy over at Craft Junkie Too is up to it again!! She has asked her wonderful design team (including me) to create a project with the theme:

I love the silhouettes on A Child's Year! They are so simple but beautiful.
The Mother and Child (and the shadow) were cut at 3" to fit on my 3 1/2" x 6".

The card base is craft, the first layer is generic black card stock and the background pattern paper is DCWV The Garden Stack (includes glitter). I added green ink around the edges of this layer and white gel pen stitches to the black layer.

The pink and white twine is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, but you can pick some up in many other online shops like Pink by Design Store, The Twinery and Scrappy Mom's Stamps too.

The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment stamp is Studio G from last year. I love the dollar bins!! Around here, Michael's dollar bins are pretty empty these days but Craft Warehouse always has wonderful $1 stamps to choose from.

Jump over to Tracy's blog at and 
see what she and her other Crafty Designers have to share.
AmberKatie and Tracy have all made wonderful projects to show you today!

This card really moves me. My mother was a very talented silhouette artist. She died in January and my heart is broken. This is going to be a tough Mother's Day for me!
Beautiful card!!!
Have a Happy Mother's Day and thanks for joining us this week for the Sentimental Sunday's Challenge!
