Swirls to Mother

For my card today I chose to work on some special Mother's Day cards so that I was not last minute rushing to get them done. This is my sitting Edwin stamp and it is one of the first ones that I purchased and I love him because I can use him anywhere, on a ribbon, on a bench, in the grass, anywhere. The paper is from my Basic Grey collection but I can not tell which one because it was sent to me in single sheets but the blues and earthtones are just so pretty. Of course, Edwin is colored with my copics and I am still trying to perfect my coloring and shading and I am pleased with the way he came out- but will be studying Claudia some more (wink!) The swirls are cut with my sizzix out of some blue bayou and vellum, added some metal, dew drops and a prima. Ha- I don't typically add flowers to my Edwin cards but since it is for a mom- it had to ahve some flowers on it doncha think? I hope you like him as much as I do! Oh, Oh- did you see I stitched? Well that is kind of a funny story but I had a few choice words for that machine (my mother would laugh).

Have a great day!

I think it's perfectly fine to have a boy image and a flower on the same card. Especially when it's for a mom.
