The Making of Mother's Day Card - Sweet Life


The Making of a Mother's Day Card


Sometimes you have to just sit back and practice.
I am a Taurus peeps.
Strong willed, bull headed, head strong, though
creative and ..well IMPATIENT.

I really have no patience with stamps I have to align up.
Though I love them so.
I was smitten with this little picture in a shabby chic or vintage finds magazine.
Since I kept thinking about it, 
I decided to design a card based on the inspiration.

Yikes, I would need to use the Sweet Life PTI set.

Here is my first go at this design based on the inspiration pic below. I realize I want to add more greenery under the popped up cup...I will refine the design.
I loved, loved the teapot in the inspiration pic, 
though I do not have a teapot die 
(I ordered the Besotted one....)
Though for now, I can use my Memory Box Dainty Tea Cup

Oooooooooh I can't wait until I get the teapot DIE, it will look adorbs!!!
Uggghhhhh The agony..... LOL
Supplies:
PIT Sweet Life Set
Memory Box Dainty Tea Cup Die
Hero Arts Night Chalk Ink
Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue, Stampin' Up! Tempting Turquoise
Brilliance Mediterranean Blue, Heri Art Green Hills (Mini Shadow Ink Cube)
Versacolor Winters Green



Here is the Inspiration:
Sweet Isn't it!

Your blue roses nearly have me in tears - in a good way - because I've only seen them created by extraordinary people. That you would translate the inspiration image into something so gorgeous, so exquisite, so deeply touching, only makes sense. You are extraordinary; you are 'real'. You've sparked memories of my 'first' encounter with blue roses long ago (a sad occasion, but "joyously" significant nonetheless - perhaps a note to explain some day) that have me smiling! Yes, you are remarkable! Hugs~c
