Happy First Mother's Day
This card is obviously designed for a brand new mom. I wanted to make it very girly so I kept it pink and white. I included the feminine touches of a doily, pearls, scallops and ribbon. The sentiment was computer generated.
I used this adorable Sweetie Bear from StampArt Design by Kathryne. I colored the bear with Copics. The bows were paper pieced and have tiny pearl centers. She was fussy cut and her nose and dress were accented with a white gel pen. She was adhered with pop dots to the card front. Faux stitching finishes off the edges of the card and background paper.
