Color Throwdown #691 // Cupcake Inspiration #543 // Fusion #4.28.22 // As You See It #274

Happy Mother's Day!!!

2 cards celebrating mothers...

Card #1 is inspired by 2 challenges...

Color Throwdown // #ctd691 ...A color challenge!!  Mint, strawberry, yellow, and navy!!  I actually used a retired color from Stampin Up called Strawberry Slush!!  So I had to pick a set of strawberry stamps!!

Cupcake Inspiration // #CI543 ...A theme challenge!! Mother's Day!!  Oh...and I also liked the strawberry pink in the inspiration photo!!

Card #2 was inspired by 2 challenges...

Fusion Challenge // #4.28.22 ...A fusion challenge!!  Use the photo or the sketch or fuse them together and use both.  I decided to use both for this Mother's Day card.

As You See It // #AYSI274 ...A fill in the blank challenge!! The best thing about mothers is______.  For me it is like the butterflies on this card...closeness!!  My mom lives below me and I love that she is close by!!  I also love that my mom can be celebrated everyday and not just on this one day of the year!!

  1. Such a great card, DJ - and how lucky to have your Mom so close! What a great thing! Love your pretty blue butterflies, too, lol. Thanks so much for playing at As You See It!

  2. Beautiful cards! You've reminded me I need to stop by Troyers to see if any strawberries are available - lol! Thanks for joining us at CTD this week!

  3. This is lovely, DJ! I like the clusters of butterflies, linking in with your idea of closeness. The pop of colour against the black and white of the background is striking. Thanks for joining in with us again at As You See It.

  4. Such pretty cards for Mother's Day! Glad you shared one at Fusion!

  5. I'd love to see your stash, dj! That Embosslit was one of the first ones I ever had and I loved it! Your cards often awake good memories for me! Closeness is a great quality of moms to celebrate and your butterflies illustrate that well. I really like your layout and colours! Thanks for filling in our blanks at As You See It Challenges.

  6. Wonderful Mother's day card! Thanks for playing along at Cupcake Inspiration!

  7. Beautiful cards DJ and I love those embossed butterflies against the black and white banner - so elegant. How great that your Mum lives so close by - mine lives 4 hours away and I so wish she was closer. Thanks for sharing with us over at As You See It this week!
