Sweet Sunday 22
Here is my take on the Sweet Sunday 22 sketch this week.
Do you have a very favorite picture of your mother? Well, from early in my childhood, ever since I saw this picture in a family photo album, it has been my fav. My mom was just 18 years old on this high school graduation picture. This card is for her 80th birthday which will be on July 4, 2010. I always tell people that I have the best mom in the world and that she is a real saint. Well, I've sort of given her a halo of pearls around her picture on this card.
Here are the details: I printed the picture on white cardstock and then embossed it about 5 times with versa mark and clear embossing power to give it a glassy look. I mounted it on a black scallop that was cut from a nestie. The DP is from Kaiser Craft and is 2 sided. The white flourish was along the side the striped side of the paper which worked out perfect for this challenge. The black is linen from Archiver's. I embossed the SU pale plum with a CB folder. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado "Garden Flowers" clear acrylic set and the flourish above and below the sentiment is from Memory Box "Vintage Garden" clear acrylic set. The border punch is MS. Lastly, I added 3 clear rhinestones on a few flowers along the bottom DP.
Thanks Karen for a sketch that inspired me to create this. Hope I can actually save it for her birthday next year and don't break down and give it to her this year instead:))
