Shopping Our Stash is Celebrating Mother's Day for Challenge #352

It won't be long before it is Mother's Day and you want to be ready with a card for Mom or for someone that has been like a second mom.  I have an idea who will be the recipient of my design team card.

I used Pansy Patch circa 1998 from Stampendous and Leigh's Basket, limited edition 

I stamped the pansies, coloured and fussy cut them out The basket was stamped with Versafine Sepia on Crumb Cake and added some shadows to the slats.

Since this is a Mother's Day card for a friend I used a lovely sentiment (retired from SU) and cut it out with a tag die and popped it up on the basket.

Also from Limited Edition is the Flower/Friendship Slip Card stamp which goes along with the basket stamp. The sentiment was stamped with versafine purple and the pansies were attached to it.

Here is the slip-card on it's own. 

There were so many stash items used for this card, I haven't given any of these three stamps any love for a long, long time. probably because it is a very time consuming venture but so pretty when it is finished. 

Thanks for looking today and head over to the Main Blog check out what the rest of the design team have made for Mimi's theme.

Gorgeous. I almost used pansies too (my mother-in-law’s card will have them- but I didn’t get that one done yet) - you made them up perfectly. Love them :)
