Mother's Love

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: For Mom or a Special Woman
And here is my card for your inspiration:
This is the Mother's Day card for my mother-in-law.  One of her favorite colors is purple and it just so happened that I had a little bit of purple organza ribbon hanging around, so I started with that.  I won these gorgeous handmade flowers from Petal Lu a couple months ago and really wanted to use one, so I decided to use a purple and gray color combo.  The ribbon was just big enough to tie the bow and the fun sparkly die cut in the upper left corner was in my bits and pieces stash, so yeay for using up some scraps!  I created the background using Guide Lines 2 from PTI.  It was a little bit bold for the look I was going for, so I covered it with a vellum panel, and then it was perfect!  I used some liquid pearls to add to her pearl necklace and finished the card off with pearls and a cut little heart charm.
Here is the sentiment on the inside: 
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Hi Heather,
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for leaving such a lovely message too. I thought I would check out the card you linked up at Crafty Catz too. All I can say is WOW, I love purple - so perhaps I am a little biased! - the image is beautifully colured and I love the luxurious touches of bling. I'm sure your mother in law will love this! Hugs, Jacky x
