With Love

This weeks challenge with Joann @ Jo's Scrap Shack is to use the colours grey blue and to use embossing.  I made a Mothers Day card for my awesome Mum.  I used black cardstock for my base which I folded and embossed using the Honeycomb Textured Impressions embossing folder from Stampin Up.  I then rubbed the raised areas using Colonial White ink from CTMH.

I then embossed a number of blue and grey pattern paper scraps and cut them out to fit inside the hexagons creating the flower pattern.  I then used some grey ribbon to form the stems and leaves and stamped the sentiment and the lips.

The card is very different from my initial vision and I am yet to decide whether I like it or not.  The important thing is Mum loved it and in the end that is all that matters.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Oh wow Kellie this is so awesome! Definitely not your traditional colors of flowers and such and this is awesome. Such a great monochromatic look and I love that you used the hexagons to create the flowers! This is great!!
