PSC27 Wonderful Mother

This week's Perfect Sentiments
Challenge is a Mother's Day Color Story.
You can see the challenge here.

I used all 5 colors in the color story.
My versions of the colors were kiwi kiss,
cherry cobbler, dusty durango, barely
banana, and whisper white.

My card base is whisper white,
with a kiwi kiss DP, cherry
cobbler, and another DP
forming my card front.
I stamped the image from SU's
A Kind Word stamp set in
memento tuxedo black ink,
and used markers and blender
pens with ink to color it in.
I used a variety of coordinating
DPs for my layers.
I stamped the sentiment from
SU's Well Scripted stamp set
in memento tuxedo black ink.
I added some hodgepodge
hardware with kiwi kiss ribbon
and some pearls for some
embellishing.

Ironically, this challenge was posted
on April 11, the one year
anniversary of my Daddy
leaving us to start his Heavenly
journey.  This last year would not
have been survivable if it wasn't
for my awesome mom! She is truly
amazing! So it was perfect timing
to celebrate my wonderful mother
and all she does for her daughters and
grandchildren! We love you Mom!

Wonderful card Krista. You did a fabulous job with our challenge/color story. I too can relate to how much we have to lean on our Moms when our Dads go to be with our Heavenly Father. I almost lost my mom in February due to a blood clot in her lungs. That was really tough and I just don't know what I will do without her with the time comes. Thanks for joining us at The Perfect Sentiment.
