Happy Mother's Day

I've made a gift for my MIL for Mother's Day using the image I'm showcasing today, and I wanted to make a card to match.  She's called PomPom (the image, not my MIL!), but I think she must be retired now as I can't find her in the store.  She was one of my earliest Lilis and she's been one of my favourites, but I've been busy with new images lately and haven't used her in a while.  So today I'm rectifying that. :0)

The sentiment was printed on vellum using Word (I created an arc in WordArt to match the curvature of the image panel).  I stamped and painted the image in DI reinkers, and used some of my favourite Maja Design papers (I may be a teensy bit addicted to these).  The ribbon actually matches the image more than it appears in the photo, and I added a die cut butterfly (another neglected item in my stash).

I hope it motivates you to dig out your old favourites for some reminiscing!

I am always torn between inking up new stamps and revisiting old favourites! I don't have this image but always liked it, she is a real cutie :-)
Gorgeous card, the way you did the sentiment is so clever and I share your addiction to Maja Design papers!

Big hugs, Kat xx
