Fabulous Friday-Mother's Day Card

Hello All!
Today our design team will be sharing our Mother's Day cards with you! Mine is using the Cameo Girls from Sugar Creek Hollow, along with a Mother's day sentiment. I think these ladies sort of represent a time line of how women have changed. Since these are digital images I was able to "digitally paper piece" the bonnet on the first lady. I really enjoy being able to do that, it really comes in quite handy! I printed the ladies twice and popped up the colored ones to give them some depth.

The frame is actually a part of this set and I used a versamark pen along with Perfect Pearls in bronze and gold. The photo doesn't show the beautiful finish the pearls gave it, but if you have used these you will know what I'm talking about.

I hope you will take the time to leave me a comment, visit the rest of the design team to see the awesome cards they made to share with you and of course, go to SCH's site to pick up your Friday Freebie and check out the "goodies"!!

Thanks for stopping by!
