Great Friend = Mother

Some Sundays I am really amazed that there is featured Splitcoaststamper (SCS) member that I don't know considering how much time as I spend on SCS. Today was one of those days~ and Wattle's (aka Kathy's) gallery is so lovely~ what a discovery treat.

Here is the card I made for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS116).
The FS challenge is so fun~ basically you case a card while changing at least two things from that 'Featured Stamper's' gallery. I based my card on Kathy's Gum Blossoms card. I kept Kathy's layout, the three brads and the paper piercing. I changed the stamps, the colors, added ribbon and eliminated the sentiment tag.

This card was realitively easy although there are quite a few layers. The base is Baja Breeze (A2 size), then a layer of Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, and the last layer on the base is the new SU! Designer Series Paper (dsp) called 'Walk in the Park" from the Occasions Mini catalog. There are 3 brads from the Vanilla HodgePodge Hardware collection in the upper right corner. The 4 sides of the DSP are paper pierced. {I just love this DSP because it has nice spring-summer colors in floral and silhouette patterns which are so trendy fun and great for gals plus there are geometric patterns in colors that are great for guys.}

The larger top layer is Sahara Sand, Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze with a half size piece of 'Walk in the Park' dsp. A single piece of Baha Breeze 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon is wrapped around the top layer and the base layer. The smaller top layer is Baja Breeze, Cameo Coral and Very Vanilla with Cameo Coral sponged edges. The top layer image is two parts and from the new stamp set called "Great Friend" found in the Occasions Mini Catalog. The first part is a frame which is stamped on Vanilla cardstock in Baja Breeze and cutout; the second part is a cutout Cameo Coral butterfly (on Very Vanilla). Two other cutout butterflys flank the central image. And in the bottom right stamped in Baja Breeze is the "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment from the "All Holidays" stamp set.

That's it...pretty easy but it takes a little more time than the average card due to the number of layers. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

Great CASE job.
