PPCCB 370 using Star Stampz Seedling image

Seedling...sprout...nurtured little one

makes me think of my mother

She's amazing. Still mothering her 3 "young" chicks who are all in their 50s, too! Aren't we blessed!

Happy Mother's Day 2018

PPCC blog badge and link:

Star Stampz sponsor badge; this is the sponsor who provided the Seedling image for me to use.
Half of the design team has images from this company to use for their inspiration creations this week. 

Besides using the image for my making motivation, I'm also modifying a sketch layout design from Mojo Monday #459 for this card:

And I've been motivated to do another mixed media approach with the base card by painting (applying paints of red, blue, and green) with a tissue:

My mom's favorite color is blue and mine is purple so there will be some small uses of lavender mixed with the blues, greens, and some blue-gray hues.

And here are some more views of cover and inside panel:

The image was colored with colored pencils for a softer look and in person is so very sweet looking!

This is a close-up view of the featured image "Seedling".

This side view helps show the multiple layers for the focal image, the cording, and the gorgeous double butterfly stick-on!

The inside panel was kept very simple with mini zig-zag decorative scissors edging the papers and embellished with a stick-on from the same set as the ones used on the front.

I'm glad I took this week's image to prepare my Mother's Day tribute about 2 months in advance. Frankly, most of the time I'm last minute with the best of intentions. :)

Still crafting away in the mixed up weather conditions of north central Illinois!, Becca (We had the weirdest snow showers yesterday and it happened to be a day that I needed to be out on the road at 2 different times of the day in the midst of all that weather wackiness!)


  1. Aaaahhh, what a sweet Mother's day card Becca! Beautiful layout and papers!

    1. Linda, thanks for the crafting compliments! It's a delightful feeling when all the aspects come together isn't it!?!!!


My heartfelt thanks for visiting my blog.
