RAK from Mom!

Just got this card in the mail a couple days ago from my Mom and wanted to share (don't worry - I've adopted a policy never to post other's work here without asking permission!). The colors are so subtle that it looks best in person, and I maybe should have used a camera rather than scanner to show all the textures.

(Click photo for detail)

Card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

This card has a lot of tactile appeal in person! The card front is grey, then there is a layer of torn mulberry paper, then a wallpaper panel with raised stripes. The leaves were Cuttlebugged with the script folder, then run thru it with 2 of the 4 leaf dies. The flowers (from Archiver's Hot Spot) are pop-dotted - there is a gemstone in the center of the small one, and a decorative acrylic dome on the other. What's really hard to see is the sparkle all around the edges of the large flower and the irredescent (I'm sorry! I can NEVER remember the spelling on that word - ugh!) and patterned paper. The sentiment panel is soft metallic gold over cream.

I think it's just beautiful in it's serene colors and clean design, and how can I not feel loved with that sentiment? :o) Thanks Mom!

My, my! The acorn really DOESN'T fall far from the tree! What fun to have such talent to share with each other. Beautiful card, Mom! Thanks, Nancy, for posting and explaining--this helps to "see" the textures.
