Creative Crew - April Holiday Focus

Here is my next creative crew project.

If you would like to join the challenge here is the info - CCREW0412HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Holiday Focus
Mom and Dad, Mum and Dad, Mom or Dad. Remember those that gave us life. Make a card, a scrapbook page or a decor item that honors Mom or Dad or both. Continue using the In Colors as your main colors.

I wanted to create a card for my Mom and Dad and since their anniversary is just around the corner. I used the set Elements of Style which is perfect for an anniversary card especially the sentiment "Life is a matter of Moments". I used concord crush since that was their color when they were married and then I paired it with pear pizzazz. I embossed the concord piece with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. I watercolored the flowers to give it the shades as well as added a bit of shimmer paint to make it sparkle just a bit. I think they will love this card!! Happy Stamping!

So pretty, Carmen! Love the way you "softened" the Concord Crush with the watercoloring for the flowers.
