Sugar Bowl #6 - Mother's Day

Happy Saturday!

Hope you're enjoying the weekend. We are just relaxing at home getting ready to visit family this afternoon for dinner. Then tonight is movie night after the kiddos go to bed.

I have a card to share that I made for the Sugar Bowl challenge #6 which was to make something for a Mother. It could be a card or a gift for your own mother or a mother you know. You have to use a Sugar Nellie stamp and you can not make your project for any other challenges, just for this Sugar Bowl challenge.

This is the card I made. I used a gate fold style, it measures 5 1/2 x 11 inches and is scored at 3 and 8 1/2 inches to make the card a 5 1/2 inch square. The cardstock is SU! Regal Rose and Pirouette Pink. The papers are new BasicGrey Porcelain.

This is the outside. I used this Sugar Nellie stamp by Elisabeth Bell. I received her from my friend Deb. I love the sweetness in her face and the cute little bunny. The flowers are ones I received from my friend Jo with Porcelain Button centers by BasicGrey and pearls from the Pretties Kit available from SU!. The card is tied closed with some organza ribbon in pink and has a hat pin for an added accent.

This is the inside view. I added some white cardstock which has been punched with the SU! eyelet punch. The paper is more Porcelain with more pearl centered flowers and a sentiment from All Holidays from SU!.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend! Happy Stamping!! :)
