Mother's Day Card


These beautiful Anna Griffin embossing folders came into my possession when I won a fabulous blog candy prize from Mary. It's a 2-piece set that includes a cover-all folder along with a matching border folder that's called Treillage. I used a piece of lavender card stock to cut the Spellbinders Medallion Five (also a prize from the same blog candy package) and topped it with a matching padded brad. The horizontal border was done with a SU! punch, and I added a jewel tag that says "mother" along with some gingham ribbon.

I'll enter this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge to make a "mother's day or special girl" card, as well as the Mod Squad weekly challenge which is "tag - you're it" - add a tag.

Have yourself a really fine day today, and thanks for stopping by :)

You're the luckiest girl I know, Carol, always winning something. This embossing folder is beautiful, as are all of Anna Griffin's folders. That was so nice of Mary to have that wonderful giveaway. You made a beautiful card and I love that sweet, gingham ribbon.

Somehow I think of medallions as being rather masculine but you girly-ed this one up wonderfully! What a sweet card. Great background embossing along with the border. You scored with that one!
