Just for Mom...

Today's card is just for MOM and given the yellow crepe streamer paper flowers and the sewing pattern flower leaves, I had my own mama in mind when I was crafting this the other day.

That bling-y flower center was made using Want2Scrap silver rhinestone bling and I have a detailed tutorial over on Want2Scrap today to show you how to make your own vintage jewelry inspired centerpieces. Check it out {HERE}.

The crepe streamer flowers are so delicate looking IRL....think dried wrist corsage flowers delicate.

To make the delicate leaves for these flowers, I folded a sewing pattern multiple times and freehand cut a leaf shape.  Leaving them stacked like this gives them a fun fluttery look.

I used some Want2Scrap nestabling (petite scalloped circle) direct to my background DP for a pretty element that highlights the flower and that sweet little girl image from October Afternoon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate your company.  Have a lovely day!
