Usually I'm running around at the last minute making a Mother's Day card for my husband's mom. (My mom has been gone for several years. =( ) But this year, thanks to The Color Throwdown #138, I have my MIL's card done!! Yea!!
Here is the card I made.
When I first saw the colors for this challenge, I immediately thought of red to go with the navy and white. This is such a common color combo that I decided I needed think about it and try to give some other colors a chance, so I didn't make a card right away. I've been working on some new product ideas for our little home based business so I sat down with my hook and crochet thread.....red crochet thread...to create a few things. When I was done making the little flower, I knew it was going onto a navy and white card!! And that it would be my MIL's Mom's Day card!
The blue is Not Quite Navy from SU! and I embossed the white CS with my new Cuttlebug Ornamental Iron emboss folder. The two navy medallions were cut with the die plate from the same Cuttlebug set. I stamped the MOM in Riding Hood Red with the Lovely Letters alphabet, both from SU! The pearl on the red crocheted flower, (which was made by me! =) ), is a button from my stash.
