Mums the Word

Back again this morning with the second day of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps April Release! Today the Ink Squad is featuring a lovely set perfect for women in your life, called Mums the Word.


Along with beautiful phrases for a mother, this set also offers versatility with a birthday sentiment and has some cool, bold flower type images. I chose to make a card featuring these flowers, and started by embossing them in gold and highlighting that with a watercolor mix of Twinkling H2Os, and stitched them to the card base. I added some gold and pink banners and a black ribbon tab, along with the sentiment from the set. I think this would be perfect for a teenager or young women, and filled a niche in my stash of cards.

Once again, please stop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog for more cards featuring Mums the Word, and to find out how you can win this equally awesome set as the one previewed yesterday...
