in celebration of mothers (pp94)

One more week until Mother's Day and because of that, this week's Paper Players theme is In Celebration of Mothers!

As the new catalog debut draws nearer (June 1st!), I wanted to be able to use some of my retiring product a little more before having to say goodbye, so I chose to play a little bit with the Berry Blossoms DSP to help create this week's card. I just love the flowered pattern in this pack of paper! I decided to let the paper do the talking by creating strips of paper with a banner notch at the end of each of them.  I love these little petite butterflies and I wanted to give each of them a jewel accent.

Stamp Set: Delightful Dozen
Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Berry Blossoms DSP

Ink: Calypso Coral

Accessories: Dimensionals, Jewel Accents, Wisteria Wonder polka dot brads

Tools: Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

Come visit The Paper Players and check out the inspiration from the design team! Be sure to link up your card before Friday, May 11 at NOON.

What a fun and fabulous card, Heidi! I love that layout with those pretty patterned banners. The butterflies are such a sweet touch, too. I really like how the patterns pop off the clean white background. All-around gorgeousness! Big hugs! :)

LOVE this card, Heidi!
Very effective use of DSP and I like how the banners are not the same lengths ... eye catching!
