A Theme for Mom — PP144

It’s all about Mom today at the Paper Players.

Now, I know that Mother’s Day is next Sunday, but for those of us who need to get a card in the mail pretty soon in order for Dear Mom to receive her card on time, it’s a good thing that Anne Marie Hile made this challenge for us today.

I was inspired by a picture of a beautiful shower curtain I saw in a Garnet Hill catalog recently.  I tore out the page and pasted it in my inspiration notebook.

The gray on this card is actually one of the new colors, Smoky Slate.  It’s such a pretty gray.  It almost looks silver on the white card stock.

I hope you can make time to join us in the challenge at the Paper Players this week.  You need a Mother’s Day card anyway, right?  Go check out what the other talented designers made:

  1. Amy, you’re not going to believe this but…I have that SAME catalog page on my desk AND I almost used it for this challenge!! How crazy is that? 🙂 There’s always such great inspiration in Garnet Hill. The shower curtain is gorgeous–love the colors and patterns–and I love your interpretation of it. Smoky Slate does look like silver and I love how you’ve backed the paper doily with the stamped one–genius!

    • Oh, wow, Nance! That would have been funny if we had such similar cards. I must be doing something right if I am gravitating to some of the things that inspire you, as I always love everything you make.

  2. I love your inspiration picture and the card is perfect! Great colors and I need to use that set more often! You have inspired me to start an inspiration notebook! 🙂

  3. Your card looks just like the inspiration photo, Amy! The doily on a doily looks great, as does the spritzing on the background. Not giving up my spritzer, LOL!
