a mother’s day card, not for my mother!…

Hello everyone.  I have been MIA for awhile and I have missed posting and interacting with you.  My work as a CASA (court appointed special advocate) has been taking a whole lot of time.  There are so many children in need of assistance and the numbers of children coming into care has been increasing exponentially.  It seems to me that the seriousness of their mistreatment has sadly, been increasing as well.

Being creative certainly gives me a much needed break and today’s new challenge at My Artistic Adventures is about Mother’s Day, for a sister or aunt.  I decided to break with tradition and make a card for a very dear, 93 year old friend of mine…

PaperPrimrose MAA1

I used a fabulously realistic gold frame and vintage photo from the ‘Vintage Beautiful Framed Women‘ file…

PaperPrimrose MAA2

The mystery woman in the vintage photo looks a lot like my paternal grandmother!…

PaperPrimrose MAA3

On top of a base layer of distressed white paper, I placed a smaller rectangle of paper with inked edges.  On top of that paper, there is a panel of embroidered lace fabric.  The digital frame and photo image were raised up with foam pop dots…

PaperPrimrose MAA4

Perfect pearls in ‘platinum’ were placed around the edge of the distressed white panel…

PaperPrimrose MAA5

A length of seam binding wraps around and is accented with a double bow.  The sentiment was stamped directly onto the seam binding with StazOn black ink.  I think this vintage style mixed with an atypical sentiment will suit my friend to a tee!

Please join us for this new challenge at My Artistic Adventures!

 

Hugs and blessings,
