Monochromatic Mother's Day Card {Cupcake Inspirations}

Supplies: cardstock from Bazzill; patterned paper from Vintage Street Market; Candi from Craftwork; resin roses from We Call Her Happydaks etsy; mouse stamp from PSX; sentiment stamps from Lawn Fawn; ink from Clearsnap; chalk from Stampin' Up.

Good morning!  I just have a quick card share today.  It's a monochromatic card, inspired by this week's challenge at Cupcake Inspirations.  I tried to capture the effect from the photo, with each layer of the cake/card getting progressively lighter.  And of course the lightest layer had to be roses.  :)

I didn't have many supplies in this pinkish-purple color scheme, so I improvised, stamping my background cardstock with a cardboard tube and making stars with an old punch card.

This image is a combination of five stamps: the mouse, "happy," "mother's," "day," and "!"  It was a fun challenge to get all the stamps lined up just right, and I'll admit that it took me a few tries to get it right.  Once I was happy with the stamped image, I highlighted key areas with chalk.

That's all for today.  See you again soon!

 ETA: I made "Sweet Six" (Top 6) again.  Thanks, CI!
