DCBD #126



Hello to all! Can you believe another week has went by. I wanted to try and kill 2 birds with 1 stone this time around. So this is going to be my mom's mother's day card, as well as, this week's challenge card.

Our challenge was to use anything that went with the Big Shot. I have used these items before for this challenge (top note die and manhattan flower embossing folder), but I haven't used the vellum. My mom loves flowers so I knew I wanted to use flowers for her card.

I ended up using a stamping sponge on the vellum with almost amethyst and rose red ink. I do like how it turned out. The color of card stock you use behind it could totally change the look though. I ended up using pink pirouette behind mine cut with the top note die cut (love this die cut). The other card stock is almost amethyst and DSP regal rose from the hostess pack.

Please take the time to visit as many of the other Diva's as you can. Your comments are always greatly appreciated. It helps us to know what people really like. Click here to go to the DCBD blog. You can also visit any of the Diva's from my side bar. If you do the challenge yourself and have a blog, please post it. Once you do go to the DCBD blog and sign your name with the Mister Linky Widget. It is a lot of fun. We like to see your work too.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look and leave comments. Have a great day.
