Cardz TV's Challenge #29 "There's no other like my Mother"

CLICK HERE to enter my 200th Follower Giveaway!!!

Hello Friends =)
I hope you are all having a great day today. I'm excited because it's the start of the weekend and what an awesome and fun-filled weekend this will be! To start the weekend off right, it's challenge day at Cardz TV  and Mary challenged us to create cards or projects for Mother's Day. I don't know about all of you, but I have the best Mom in the whole world and I really put a lot of thought and love into this card for her.

Cardz TV Ch# 29"There's no other like my Mother!"
Make a card, layout or craft project for Mother's Day
Starts: Fri, May 3rd
Ends: Thurs, May 16th @ Noon EST
Prize: 1 set of Cardz TV Stamps

My card  base is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 and I used Winter Wisteria cardstock by Papertrey Ink. I love this color paper. I have the matching ink as well and lately, Papertrey Ink's cardstock and inks have become my favorite. The roses are from the Flower Silhouettes stamp set by Hot off the Press.

I stamped the roses onto white bazzill cardstock using the "New Leaf" and "Autumn Rose" inks by Papertrey Ink and then fussy cut them out. To get the lighter color rose, I used the Autumn Rose ink and stamped the image once an then stamped off once. This is a great way to get more mileage out of your inks and to get different shades of your favorite colors. The patterned damask paper that I used was just some paper in my stash that I had from the Paper Loft. I used the sentiment, "I wish you love" from the Cardz Tv Stamps set called "More Encouraging Thoughts". This is an amazing set to have. Mary thinks of it all!!!

To finish off my card, I added some green striped washi tape down along the seam of where the patterned paper and my carstock come together. I sure hope this card puts a smile on my mom's face!
Well that is my card today however, my design team sisters have rocked this challenge and I encourage you to stop by the Cardz TV Blog and visit their blogs for some great inspiration goodiness!
