Amazing Mom, PP344 & MOJO496

Hello friends, and a Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! As you read this I'll likely be having brunch with my family. I hope you all have a nice day in store, too. It's also time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. The fabulous Claire is our hostess this week with a bold, tropical color challenge. 

I've been doing a lot of watercoloring with white embossing lately; I hope you are not tired of it yet! I watercolored with my Zig markers again today. The bright colors matched the challenge colors perfectly. Though my Mom is no longer with me, I was thinking about her and how is amazing she was while I made this card.

The inspiration for my layout came from this week's sketch challenge at Mojo Monday.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Bohemian Garden, Amazing Women (Essentials by Ellen)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Green Apple (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Black and White Basics (My Favorite Things)
Ink Pads: Versamark, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Clean Color Brush Markers (Zig)
Tools: Big Shot, Heat Tool, Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn), Bohemian Garden Dies (Essentials by Ellen)
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please visit the rest of our Design Team at The Paper Players, and we hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too!

Sandy, Happy Mother's Day. I hope you had a wonderful brunch with your family. My Mom has been gone for 32 years and I still find it impossible to make Mother's Day cards. How wonderful that you thought of her when you were creating this card - and how gorgeous it turned out. The little black and white striped layer makes the colors pop off the page. Fabulous job

Aw, this is a beautiful tribute to your mom! Your coloring is amazing! I think I need a trip to LI so I can play with your zigs!!!

This is just fabulous Sandy - I love the watercolouring with the white embossing and agree with Jaydee that the black and white striped panel behind makes your panel pop. I'm sure your Mum would have loved something so beautiful. I hope your Mother's Day brunch was a good one!
