For My Mother


Hi everyone.  This week's Sassy Studio Designs Dare to be Sassy Thursday is all about hearts.  The challenge is to use at least one heart in your project.  I chose to dedicate a card to my mother.  Next week will mark the second anniversary of her passing and I still miss her like it happened yesterday.

I decided to use this image because my sister says it is the prettiest SSD image.  I used Copics to color the image and I fussy cut her out.  I made the wings by stamping Versamark on plastic and using white embossing powder.  I think she makes a beautiful angel.  

For the heart requirement, I embossed pearl shimmer paper with a heart Cuttlebug folder.  The border ribbon punch is from EK Success.  The ribbon is generic.  Behind the background is a piece of mirror paper and the base card is made of pearl shimmer paper.   The Thinking of You stamp is from Our Daily Bread.  I know I can't exactly mail this to my mother but I think she helped me make it.

Please head over to Sassy Studio Designs and see what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by.
