Make a Mother's Day card at Squiggle Fly! Challenge 1513

The image I'm using is called Time for the Spa by Lynne Stansbery, one of Squiggle Fly's great artists!  I can't think of a better gift that a relaxing massage in a great Spa!  I used the sketch furnished from Seems a Little Sketchy to make my layout easier.  The great background paper is from The Girl's Paperie and has a great vintage feel to it. I matted it with a pink floral and then mounted that to kraft paper.  Used an intricate frame die cut from Spellbinders to give the image a more girly look and then embellished the name of person we honor on her special day~ MOM~ with scrabble like squares.  My Mother has long gone to Heaven but I remember her so often as I go about my days.  She was a very special woman and someone that I admired and loved deeply.  May you all have that kind of relationship with your own Mom.
Be sure and check out 2 NEW IMAGES in the Squiggle fly store by Diana Garrison!  She does the most gorgeous designs!


  1. Love that image, and your card is prefect for it! The colors, the coloring, the sentiment and the design! Brava!!

  2. Carolyn,
    Wow, how pretty - the colors are soft and lovely and the Scrabble tiles look quite grand!!

  3. So sorry I am late in commenting - it has been a tough week and I need one of these massages - just looking at the image calms me! Super sketch too. Love the way you did the tiles to spell out Mom. Great card. Hugz!!!!

  4. I'm not a mom but love, love, love massages! I love the paper you chose - such soft colours - they frame this image beautifully.
