StampinB - Mother's Day

Vicki Dutcher was the hostess for this week's Stampin' Bs challenge; and, because Mother's Day is coming up in a few weeks, she asked us to make a Mother's Day card. I used the large iris from Mark's Finest Papers' brand-new set Bearded Iris and colored it with Copic markers. After cutting it out with a Spellbinders Petite Oval Nestabilities die, I sponged around the edge with Tim Holtz Distressed Wild Honey. The background paper is SU Apricot Appeal DSP. I added a ribbon and stickpin.





How would you like to have a little fun and get a FREE stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers. MFP is hosting a Birthday Card swap over on Splitcoaststampers, and everyone who joins the swap will receive this mini-set.





To be able to participate in the swap, you have to be part of the Swap Users Group on SCS. If you aren't a member yet, here is a link to how to become a member. MFP is going to have on-going swaps; and each time you join, you'll get another free stamp set. So, in addition to the beautiful cards you receive from fellow swappers, you'll get a BONUS!
