My Favorite Things Color Palette Challenge

I used the My Favorite Things Color Palette Challenge to get a jump start on Mother's Day Cards. Again I took liberties with the color combinations by omitting the kraft and using cream instead of white. I was hoping for something clean and simple but sophisticated. 

My Favorite Things Card Sketch 165

I loosely based my cards on the My Favorite things Card Sketch # 165. I was aiming for a very elegant card. There is no sentiment so it can be used either as a wedding card or a birthday card. I added a large bow on the card above but chose to keep the card below a simpler version.
It was a lot of fun and I absolutely loved working with the velvet paper!

Mojo Monday Sketch 332

Here is my card for the Mojo Monday Sketch 332.
I know the sketch is designed for Valentine's Day but of course I went in a totally different direction with it. 
I have been in the mood to make masculine cards so this is what I came up with.

The love of a Mother

It's amazing how much my life has changed in the past few months. The birth of my precious baby boy has made my nights sleepless, my house messy, but my heart full, and my home happy. I never knew the love of a mother till I became a mother. I can't explain how strong and all encompassing this love is. I wouldn't trade my new life as a mommy for the world!

“Before you were conceived, I wanted you. Before you were born, I loved you. Before you were an hour, I would die for you. This is the miracle of love.”
