Happy Mother’s Day!! I’m sitting back after the wonderful meal and flowers my family treated me too. There is nothing like the queen treatment!! I have a card to share that I worked on last night. My last card was done under the influence of a migraine and I’m so happy to say that the clouds have cleared. My card today uses a verse from Quietfire Design called Angels from Friendship that I simply love! I paired it up with some new paper that I purchased this week called Linen from DieCuts With a View. I don’t know if it’s old or new but it had to come home with me, lol! I just love the woven look of the paper and many of the designs look like quilt patterns.
My inspiration was the rounded quilting pattern with the rounded motifs. I cut one edge of the paper out and backed each scallop with a round punch. Then I used my Spellbinders Jumbo Scallops for repetition. Up top I pulled out two shapes that I’ve neglected – Octagons and Labels Nine. I don’t always sew on cards, but this one called for it (*wink*).
By the way, my counter clicked over to a new milestone this weekend. Unless you all object, this tells me it’s time for a huge celebration – look for candy this week. I’m dreaming up a different kind of game to play – heaven only knows what I’ll come up with. Stay tuned.
Be back soon!
Oh, Becca! This is simply beautiful! Thank you so much. You have me wiping away a tear today!
just gorgeous Becca! I also grabbed that dp- LOVE it! happy Mothers day! hugs!
One of your best, simple but so classy!
So many beautiful elements to this card! I said I wouldn’t buy any more paper for awhile, but. . . . :o) TFS!
I always LOVE your cards!! I love how you mix and match the Spellbinder shapes!! I have collected quite a few of the Spellbinder dies and I need to get down to business and put them to use! Thanks for the inspiration!!
You made a smart choice. If I had seen that paper, I would have had to bring it home with me too. It’s neat. Thanks for sharing and I am glad that you had a great Mother’s Day.
Happy Mother’s Day, Becca, and all you other Becca Buddies! I love this paper and how you pulled it all together with the scallops.
By the way, I shopped at Michael’s last week, with my 40% coupon, and found the EK giant scallop just sitting there waiting for me!
Beautiful card and sentiment. Love those papers. I have that paper pad also, will have to play with it. TFS. Glad you have a nice Mother’s Day. I was treated to dinner and flowers also. Isn’t it great to be pampered.
Becca, glad that you had such a lovely Mother’s Day. Also glad to hear that you are no longer crafting under the influence (of a migraine that is! LOL) I’m amazed that you could create at all with one of those monsters in residence. Glad it’s gone. Another lovely card, that is pretty paper!
What a nice card and Happy Mother Day.
This is so classy….you do great work!

Hi Becca! I love your card! The papers and colors work so beautifully together.
I can’t wait to hear about the bolg candy idea you are cooking up!
Love everything about this card….fabulous verse, beautiful papers, awesome Bow….and of course it wouldn’t be what it is if you hadn’t of made it !
Thank you as always for your inspiration.
This is very pretty, Becca. I too like DCWV paper they have some beautiful designs. Beautiful composition Becca, everything just seems to go together. So glad you had a wonderful mother’s day. As always Becca, TFS!!! :-D
You make the prettiest cards with all of the layering and diecuts. I really like this paper. Nice!
Just beautiful. I can see why you had to have that paper! Sometimes crafting items just fall into my cart and then of course I have to keep them! Guess that is ok since it is hard to get craft items in my area of Canada. I love the way you mix the nesties, and find new ways to use things. Very inspiring! I would be lost without your blog.
Hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day Becca?!! Love your card.
Glad you are feeling better and had a lovely Mother’s Day!
Your stitching on the card is perfect, both in technique and for a finishing touch.
Thanks for sharing! :o)
Gorgeous as always!
Your card is simply gorgeous!! I hope you left some of that dp in the store for the rest of us :) It’s so lovely. tfs

Becca, you always do such wonders with Suzanne’s calligraphy stamps. This is no exception!
Beautiful creations Becca! I always love your layouts!!! Just stunning!
This is wonderful! Love the buttons and the multiple shapes you used for the sentiment and on the card in general. Great card :D
So far, this has to be my favorite card of yours. Love the texture and your color choices. Great job!
