The challenge this week over at the  Mod Squad Challenge is Mother’s Day.  I was asked to co-host with the very talented Peggy Timmerman.  (Sadly, this site is no longer active.)

For my card, I used the lily of the valley, coneflower, and tulip stamps from the Lawn Fawn – Fairy Friends stamp set along with dies from the Gina Marie Designs – Stitched Rectangle Dies set and the Happy Mother’s Day die by Lawn Fawn.  All of these items are available at Kat Scrappiness who is one of the Mod Squad Challenge sponsors this week .

Kat stocks the products that she loves and uses as well as what her customers request.  If you don’t see it in her store, feel free to contact her.  She is happy to do special orders for you!  And she offers a DISCOUNT CODE for The Mod Squad Challenge: MSC10!

This was a fun challenge for me because I wanted to create a card using one of the stamp sets I had previously purchased from Kat Scrappiness while I waited for the arrival of a new set I ordered, but I didn’t have any that seemed Mother’s Day-ish…at first.  I liked the bold and chunky style of these flowers and was able to quickly color them with Copic Markers (YG03, YG93, R14, BV04, and V000) to create my bright, whimsical  card.  I chose the patterned paper called “Garden Walk” from the Happy Day collection by Pebbles to complement these images.  This patterned paper is two sided; the front is the floral pattern I used as my background, and the back is primarily peach/orange that I used for my greeting die cut.  I chose to use the black mats to complement the bold black outlines of the flowers.

Now it’s your turn!  Head on over to the Mod Squad Challenge Blog, and show us your Mother’s Day projects. I can’t wait to see what you create!

Thanks for checking out my card project!
