Close to My Heart Mother's Day Card

Hi Everyone! Hope y'all are having a lovely day! I had created this card for a challenge for my club blog site and I wanted to share it it with y'all. I also posted it on SCS but I don't believe I posted it here on Stampin Inspirations.

Anyway, this card was created using Close to My Heart "March Stamp of the Month - Simple Beauty" which is a great Mother's Day stamp set. If you're interested in CTMH products, I do have a CTMH website located on my right side bar. Stop by and check it out.

I had watercolored the images using markers on watercolor paper and added Stickles to give it a glittery look to it. I cut out the images then mounted it with foam tape.

The background was created using the "Polished Stone" technique to give it a marbled appearance. Nothing much else to this card. The rhinestones are from Darice which can be found at JoAnns. The rhinestones are very low cost so I buy them when they are on sale.

Hopefully, I'll be able to participate in the SCS challenge tomorrow. I was too busy to participate on Monday and today.

Hope y'all have a wonderful day!!
