A mother's love

I finally completed a card for the Crochet Trim Color Trends Challenge over at the Embellish blog.

I made a circle card this time cutting out circles using the Martha Stewart Circle cutter. I stamped the Classic Fabric background in Memento Dandelion ink and cut a circle shape from it. I used a punched doily border that I pleated to fit around the circle to embellish behind the yellow design. I embossed a Mat stack 4 image and added a circle stamped with a sentiment. Another punched border and a crochet trim was added to ground the Mat stack 4 image. I finished off with inking the edges with PTI tea dye duo and adding teal and white pearls.

I paired up the colors with a sketch by Silke Ledlow for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge #115 this week. Here's the inspiration photos.
