Mother's Day card

I am really liking this color combination lately. I used my new MS Modern Garland PATP set. I really like this set it is fun ad elegant to me. The butterfly is also a MS punch. I used Glimmer mist and pearls on the butterfly. The MOM sentiment is raised with dimensionals. I included a side photo to help you see the dimension. I love, love this ribbon, too!

Summer Mini sneak peek- Fairy card

As soon as I saw this stamp I wanted to use this paper with it. I used Nestabilities circles and scalloped circles. The paper is SU - Cottage Wall DSP, card stock is Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Orchid Opulence (normally I do not like this color at all!). The flower is sprayed with Vanilla Smooch. The image is colored with SU markers. The color is a little off in the pictures, the last picture using more Razzlebery has the lighter purple (Orchid Opulence) more true to color.

Matchbox Dresser

I have been promising my son to make him a Matchbox dresser for awhile now for all of his little treasures. I used K & Co double sided paper for this. I really like the double sided papers, it makes it look like the drawers have a liner in them. I used Spellbinders Labels 8 for the monogram on top of the dresser. I used a die to make the boxes, but you could also use a template or a Cricut cut out as well. One thing I have come to realize for my boy is that less is more - some simple embellishments and he thinks it is great. Try to make something special for that male in your life
