Packed with Love

I decided to make a bit of an unconventional Mother's Day card this week, inspired by the gorgeousness of this week's Monday Mood Board challenge over at WPlus9.  Reminds me of a modern country style.  I love the color palette and the wooden hearts are my favorite.  Then, I thought I'd be so smart and spice up my wooden hearts with a few impression plates for added character.  It went just fine in my test run, fine on my next two impressions, then with my Simple Stripes IP ... oops!  I love the look, but be warned if you try this at home, folks!

At least I had the common sense to use a corner and not mess up my IP smack dab in the center!  :)

Given that I used an IP with something other than paper, I am also entering this card into the Papertrey Ink Make-It-Monday challenge #115: Beyond Paper with Impression Plates.

Happy Mother's Day!  Hope your day was "packed with love"!

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
